Default aging question

So i just started kegging my beer, my old system was 1 week in the primary, 2 - 3 weeks in the secondary and 3 - 4 weeks in bottles

my question is how does that change for kegs? How long should it be in the secondary and how long should it sit in the keg before i drink it??

Thanks

theres no absolutes in beer brewing. I leave mine carbing in keg at serving preasure for one week to a week and a half, then i let it sit for another week or so and then i drink. its going to age over time anyway so i can experience the beer over the course of weeks or many months.

as for secondary. if my beer has a poorly floculant yeast, i will secondary to clear and then keg, or leave in primary for double or tripple the time required to clear.
