this is good to know, i think id like to keep most of my beers ion the primary for 10-14 days (instead of 7). what would you consider to be high OG levels and should use a secondary and/or cold crashing?

I leave my beers in primary for 3-4 weeks. The beer is nice and clear by then and the yeast cake compacked good so it makes it easier to rack to bottling bucket without stirring up the trub.

Brew On!

I used to rack to secondary on every brew. Then tried no secondary. No secondary is what I do now unless dry hopping or oak. Your experience may vary, but 3 weeks in primary then keg or bottle and I've not noticed ill effects.
