Dunkel"rye"zen

After reading some articles on whether or not to rack to secondary, I decided not to for this batch.  There will be loads of yeast in there from the Fermentis Safbrew WB-06 yeast strain.  I want to see how the yeast does in cleaning up byproducts when left on the yeast cake.  It will not be on the cake for more than three weeks, so the risk of off flavors from autolyzed yeast should be minimal to none.  This beer is just going on its 2nd week of fermentation so it should be complete in about a week to 10 days.  I'm choosing not to do gravity test so as to minimize any chances of oxidation.  Cheers!
