I believe it. That man is a genius and I believe everything about him that I read on the Internet.

Dude we really don't understand. Are you saying that the vessels you use are different for primary, and secondary (like plastic and glass), and you wish to simply use the vessel that you currently designate as your "secondary fermenter?" for fermentation only? Then yes, of course, you do not have to transfer your beer. You can ferment it, and then bottle or keg it, with out the need of changing vessels. Primary refers to the first place it sits, and secondary the second. So saying that you want to go strait to secondary when you make it simply does not make sense. Hope we can help sir. Good luck with your brews! -Jake

Suspiciously? Go on this was a simple joke. I thought it was funny anyway but let's just stop right here before it gets ugly.

Added: I acknowledge it might have been only funny to me. Moving on.

What I can't believe is that almost everyone answered thinking this was ANYTHING but a joke... ;-)

There is no word for it (unlike troll) but there are many people on internet that feel uncomfortable with vagueness and they prefer to respond to the face value. They get upset if they feel fooled later on by a hidden humor as if it was staged to make them look tricked. That is not my intention, honestly, but if I had made the humor more obvious, then it would not have been funny. Essentially I'm joking about all those posts that say the secondaries are not necessary, just a light hearted joke... cheers.

Personally I started laughing at the first post... Some people click faster with the Absurd than others... ;-)

Absurd humor is like coriander... ;-)

I've started skipping the fermentation vessel completely and now I bottle directly after pitching yeast. Far less chance of infection this way. They almost always blow up though...

I'm way ahead of you guys...! I drink the liquid yeast while chewing the grain and let it all ferment directly in my own body... let me have a constant stream of alcohol for days...

Stick around after a Christmas season answering questions exactly like this in the Beginners Beer Brewing Forum and see how fun the joke is. You're penance is answering the "counting the bubbles to know when it's done" questions in January.
