(as an aside, personally, I don't transfer to secondaries. I know you had some blow off, but, I feel that transfering adds to oxidation and contamination potential, without much gain (bar I was going to leave in in the fermenter for an extended period of month's) Would be interested to here what others do/think)

After the beer has reached its final gravity the yeast is still active for a while and will continue to metabolise parts of the beer in ways that are considered beneficial. It's not an IPA that you want to rush to bottle so I think it's better to leave the yeast do its thing in the fermenter rather than the bottle.If you want to age the beer it is generally considered quicker to bulk age in a carboy than in lots of smaller bottles (I've never done a side by side comparison though...) I left my last imperial stout in carboys for 4 or 5 months.
