Any reasons to rack off to a secondary?

To rack off the sediment and clear faster, I always dry hop in my secondary as well.

A lot of people dry-hop in the primary, nothing wrong with it. Nothing wrong with dry hopping in secondary either.

I do that all the time! The only thing I see that I would do differently is to not pack the dryhops into the bag so tightly. If you're going to use a bag, make sure the hops are in there very loosely, so that the beer can permeate the hops inside. Use two or three bags, if needed, so that the hops are loose in the bag. Otherwise, that's what I do. I ferment for 7-10 days or until the beer has been done a few days and is clear (or clearing well). Then gently add the hops, let sit 5-7 days, and package. That's it!

I just throw those leaf hops right in the carboy. I wear sanitized gloves just to feel a little better about shoving them through the hole cause that can get tricky. The real fresh ones like I will be picking from the garden today if handled pretty gently don't clog things up at all. Better to just let them float on the top from my experience. I think they soak up the beer much better. Getting them out after not so bad as well. And no problemo going to the bottles.

Yeah simple is better. The place I do a "secondary" is at bottling time. Add my priming sugar to a sanitized carboy then rack carefully into it from primary. If I lose a little so be it that's where the crap if any is to be avoided at the bottom.

I dry hop most my beers. After 2nd'ry and non-secondary runs, I prefer to secondary. Dry hop character is much less pronounced in primary.
