Default Long primary vs. Secondaries

I don't want an out of control discussion, because in my searches, that's what these types always turn into. If you wouldn't mind, just put a post with one or the other, like this:



If you do your fermenting entirely in the primary, just post: Primary
If you rack to a secondary, just post: Secondary



Not trying to be insulting, just looking for an idea of what most people do without starting a debate.

Secondary; BTW the answers have to be at least ten characters long, so the responses have to be more than just Primary or Secondary

6 gallon glass primary only (75% time)

secondary for lagaring or dry-hopping

Only primary, but keg condition while dry hopping or waiting for a slot in the keezer.

Long primary, short secondary.

And who says you can't do a short post?

Have switched to Primary only except for lagering. This includes dry hopping in the primary also. Am in the process of comparing the results from a Primary only versus Primary/Secondary system which is what I used to do. So far I have had great results with the Primary only. Montanaandy
