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!).

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

Default I took HBT's advice and no secondary

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.
