Most people on this forum don't rack to secondary. There are several reasons that I like to do it, but for some it's not worth the effort.

The first for me is comfort; if I am too busy to bottle I can just leave it in my glass carboy for as long as I want without worrying about oxidation from plastic or off flavors from sitting on tons of yeast.

The second is clarity. If you don't care about clarity, then by all means leave in primary for the duration of the fermentation.

Most people will say there is no taste difference. I've never done a comparison batch so I cant speak on it. There is a lot of conflicting information so its more of a personal preference I think.

With any dry yeast that I've used there is a TON of dead yeast on bottom of my primary. If it makes you feel better to rack to secondary, then do it!! That's pretty much why I do it.

I will really hate ANOTHER rack to secondary yes or no thread. Not because it has been covered (it was certainly covered) but because itīs a dead end discussion there is some people that will rack to secondary and some people that donīt. Iīm just a little tired of the discussion so Iīm not giving my opionion on that issue anymore

Why did you even post a comment then? I agree with your opinion that some do and some don't and that's that, but your last sentence seems to be a bit superfluous.

I posted a comment because I wanted to, I wasnīt rude or vulgar language so I posted it and I think I donīt have to explian myself to you, but anyway I do: this kinds of threads tend to go off topic -just like now- I think the OP original question wasnīt should I rack to sencondary or not, my effort was to end a discussion that wasnīt open from the OP and to try to finish a "dead end" discussion so we all can put our different ways to aproach fermentation and actually help the OP. I didnīt say anything else about his questions because they seemed like they were already anwser.
And Iīm a superfluos person expect superfluos comments from me or you can always ignore my comments and thatīs it.

A bit touchy are we? Didn't mean to offend, just asking a question and making an observation.

On topic: I don't use a secondary simply because I'm lazy and I've never really seen a difference in clarity or taste the 2 times I did it. Let the beer sit there long enough and it'll clear itself up nicely (usually). Just have to be careful not to disturb the yeast cake too much.

It's all good. And I know the feeling when you unfairly project your discontent from an unrelated argument onto someone else. I've been there several times with my wife. I'd say RDWHAHB, but seeing how work is involved, that would probably be best left until later.
