Okay I get primary fermentation, it's where beer gets it's alcohol. 7days to 10 days. What if I want to do secondary fermentation not in the bottles but in another bucket, do I siphon it in a way that it's clear and there is no yeast. If I do bring the yeast along why do I have to move it to another bucket? I had a lot of laughs from the brewing community for starting to drink my beers after 7 days or so and pretty much drinking them all by day 14. Give me a break and please answer my question.

This explains things better than I can:

Yes, leave the yeast behind.

I'm guessing you're drinking your beer flat ... or force carbonating?

I leave my beer in the primary for three weeks. If it's a big beer, I'll rack it to a secondary & leave it there for another month or three (depending on the OG). Otherwise, it gets bottled. Once bottled, it takes me 7 - 10 days, minimum, just to bottle carb, so I can understand why the brewing crowd may have given a little chuckle -- you're done drinking your beer before most home brewers have their beer in the bottle. I admire your enthusiasm! ;-)
