It seems so simple, but I used to think every beer needed a secondary. Maybe because so many instructions mention it. Now there is a swing toward never secondary. I'm just pointing out why it's called secondary fermentor... hence when to use one.

The "swing" happened years ago.
In our small circle, but remember that AHA poll where most people indicated they were still using secondary every time?

I think next time I am not even going to go with a secondary on a beer like this. I lost probably 6 or 7 beers throughout this whole process
