Are we talking here about finishing fermenting in secondary fermenter or are we talking about transferring fully fermented beer to another vessel for flocculating and clarification?
These are two different things.
In my case, I consider it to be the latter.
I used to secondary all of my beers religiously until I discovered that it really wasn't necessary for most beers. Yeah a Barleywine or a big beer would benefit by a secondary for aging and clarification purposes, but your typical ales don't really benefit from a secondary. I rack from the primary right into the keg for most of my beers.
