Welcome to the homeBBBrew board!
Like the BBB, the homeBBBrew board is not a club, just a place to talk about making beer. Is there a swap you would like to see happen? If we can find a few others who have something similar then lets do it!

NO SPECIFIC REASON FOR THIS LINK...
I just really like the work levifunk is doing!

Not too late by a long shot. Have you racked off the sediment? If not you should, your window of opportunity is still open.

Re: 1st time homebrewer question
Chris, you're a long way from panic mode. 15 days isn't very long at all. I typically leave my beers in primary for 3-4 weeks then in the keg they go. I don't do a secondary unless I'm dryhopping, or lagering.

The big scare about leaving beers in primary/on the yeast is autolysis. It would take several months to really notice these effects. I brewing buddy of mine is the dictionary description of "lazy", and almost always has his beers in primary for several months. They usually turn out just fine.

So, as the saying goes... RDWHAHB

BTW: Welcome to the obsession, er hobby, of homebrewing. You'll never be the same again ;)
