How long have people/ brewers kept their beer on the wort before you get off flavours?
I am looking to keep mine on the wort for about a month after fermentation has finished because needing to get a new barrel.
Do you think I will be ok?
Thanks

Firstly - the wort is the pre-fermented beer. You mean the trub - which is the cake of yeast at the bottom of the fermenter after fermentation.
Leaving it on the trub for a month after it's finished fermenting is asking for trouble. Any oxygen that gets in there will turn your beer into a cardboard tasting thing. Any bugs will turn it to vinegar etc.
I'd bottle it if I were you. In 2 Ltr plastic fizzy water bottles if you have nothing else.
