Is three weeks on w1450 too long? I may not have an opportunity to rack for a few more days.

I agree with Bill. I usually let that yeast go at least 3 weeks. Usually out of laziness!

I just racked a barleywine from the primary to the keg this past weekend that I had brewed over the xmas break. No off flavors in the sample and should be drinkable once it's carbed. Though, it's going to get dry hopped first.

I have read on this board that leaving the beer in the primary too long has some ill effect. Can't remember what. So, how long is too long?

The ill effect as far as I can tell is no homebrew to drink. Done it a month and more no issues. For Ales my minimum is 2 weeks and for lagers it is 3 weeks.

Bierview, if you're thinking about yeast autolysis, that typically takes months to occur rather than weeks. RDWHAHB.

Some of us (I guess me) newbies don't even know what the heck that means!
I know it's prob something simple but beyond me!

It's Charlie Papazian's mantra. He wrote "The Joy of Home Brewing". A good source to begin your brewing experience.
