If you leave a beer in the primary for 6 weeks it's going to be just as clear as it would be if you primaried for 2 weeks and secondaried for 4 weeks. You just have to make sure not to upset the trub on the bottom when racking out of the fermenter. The only worry should be about the possible off flavors coming from extended exposure to the yeast cake
