SECONDARY. No blow off. Once the beer has cleared, mostly, I have been sending it to a keg and carbonating it.
You can drink it while it's still pretty green or you can let it sit for a week or two. I kind of do both. It's interesting to taste the changes over the week or two it would normally be sitting in a secondary fermentor. You have no contamination risk in the keg.
Until the beer fully settles you will get some turb in your glass. Once it really is settled the tube will have cleared an area around it's self (in to your glass) and it will pour clear, unless you move it around and sit it up again.
