Default Can I leave my beer in the seconadary an extra 10 days?

I have been called away tomorrow and the beer is due to be bottled a few days after.

Will it damage it to stay in the secondary an extra 10 days. This is only my second batch.

I have no idea Please advise as soon as you can.

You'll be fine leaving it in the secondary.

omg I was so afraid the answer would be no. I would have then had to run out to buy a capper and to do it. This is wonderful news

With more time in the secondary, it will need less conditioning time in the bottle.
