He will probably break out of my secondary and brew his own batch soon.

Haha, that's what I was going to say. I get those all the time in my Kombucha jars.

And I totally see the boxer in the first pic.

Secondary fermenter. The vessel my beer is currently contained in or is this a joke?

It's a joke. A lot of the guys here are pretty avidly against secondary transfers.

Screw them unless you have a the luxury of a keg set up where you can blast out the first couple nasty pints, or you love to hold your autosiphon over the cake while you try to suck as much beer out as possible while also sucking a crap load of trub into your bottling bucket, secondaries are the way to go. I can't think of a dirtier way to brew than dry hopping in primary in a carboy, as an extreme. I like as little crud in my bottles as possible.

Feisty!

Yeah, I guess my kegs serve as secondary/cold condition vessels. But I've bottles from primary and gotten some clean, bright beers. Meh.

After a month in primary I get NO crud in my bottles. I've never needed to cold crash either......My beer's CLEARER than when I used to secondary. Even with dry hopping in primary.
