Default Help me Decide fermentation vs conditioning

Hi Everyone,

I started my first batch ever on 11-13-11. An Irish Red Ale with an OG 1.042.
Its sitting in my garage in a water bath at a cozy 66F. Everything seems to be progressing nicely but here is my question/poll.

Objectives: (in order of preference)
  1. Good Tasting
  2. Well carbonated
  3. Clear

No need for a secondary for this beer in my opinion. Give it three weeks in primary and you'll give yourself the best shot at the best flavor.

A search in the forum will probably give you a better answer than a poll with limited choices. I suggest reading this for an idea.
