I'm by no means a "knows alot about lagers" home brewer, BUT... I do not rack into a secondary.
Ferment cold... since I have a tilt, which will show me the gravity while fermenting, I'll leave it alone until its close to final gravity (guesstimate).. Then unplug my freeze-mentor.. there it sits.. a week... perhaps a bit more.. (my diacetyl rest).. Once its in the serving keg.. I'll leave it on the gas and cold as long as I can... I'll even go as far as to get it where its fully carbed and drinks good, then pull the liquid line and forget about it for a while...
Talk about chattering alot.. ... Loopie has you covered very nicely..
