comment If/When to move to secondary fermentation
Marked as answer. This is still more of an "appeal to authority" than a biochemical explanation. Does Palmer offer any published research or statements from other experts that corroborates this? In particular, "Racking to prevent autolysis is not necessary" requires some kind of substantiation.

comment Can I sell my Homebrew in the UK
This is similar to the "collectors" brews you see sold on Ebay (Dark Lord in the US comes to mind.) A disclaimer says that you are buying the unopened bottle for collection purposes, but it's still not exactly legal. Admittedly it could be the case that all those sellers are licensed, but I am skeptical. It still implies to me that you should be safe doing a bottle deposit system among friends.

comment If/When to move to secondary fermentation
I sanitize the tube for my CO2, stick it in the secondary vessel, and shoot enough CO2 into the container to make this a non-issue. Obviously this isn't an option without keg equipment...

comment Shaking vs not shaking
For clarification (limited sized comments), "Yeast" (White/Zainasheff) recommends shaking the secondary vessel 2 weeks after the start of fermentation (or something similar)? Does it mention the effects (ABV, flavor)?
