No, of course not. Well, except for the vision of you without pants. Where's the eyebleach?

That is true. I wasn't however, visualizing your legs.

(Now I need to go to confession, and I'm not even Catholic!).

The visual that came to my mind.......
Could not respond to that!

There's not enough PBW or StarSan to cleanse my eyes and mind after that visual...

on a stout I just bottled. Watching all the extraneous **** go down the tube into the botteling bucket and eventually to my bottles - I wished I would not have skipped the secondary. Time will tell (3 weeks at 70) if I will need to floss after each bottle. I think you can sense...I'm a bit skeptical.

How long was it in primary? What yeast did you use? What was the recipe?

I have yet brew something that wasn't super clear right out of primary without using a brite tank. Of course I'm also making sure I don't grab crap when racking (from the bottom of the fermenter).

I always use a secondary and I always use better bottles.

I have two 6.5 primaries and four 5.0 secondaries. I keg. One batch (Ball's two hearted clone, I believe), I did not secondary or cold crash and just kegged. The first beer was nothing but trub and yeast. Then my beer outpost got completely clogged. I had to disassemble a filled keg to clean it.

Since then, I've never skipped a secondary. My sanitation is good. Three transfers and every transfer results in more clarity.

My ultimate pipeline goal is four serving kegs, two carved kegs, and 4 secondaries cold-crashed and ready to be kegged.
