    @Chessking: I have tried them and I haven't found flaws. Can't argue with success!

    The problem with this procedure is that you are limited to the yeast left in the secondary, that is slow to floculate, and you have none of the cells that start fast, work hard, and drop out on schedule. These have all been left in the primary. Secondary yeast selection leaves your beer under attenuated and "dusty". You will have clarity issues.

    I personally create a starter for all beers mostly unless I'm lazy, the last 11 gallon secondary I added to a starter and it overflowed for 2 days so I canned it and is in the fridge now

    But much less fulfilling. Or is that filling? Less filling, tastes great....

    I'll keep making it, thanks.
