would you just take a gravity reading and figure out where the beer is at?

the yeast cake is probably gassing off co2.
swirling the fermenter just helped it do that so your airlock, which is just a vent for the co2, bubbled some.

if you want to know if your beer is done or still needs time you need to take a gravity reading.

ignore the airlock. get a wine thief. pray some starsan around the lid. pop the lid. grab some wort with the sanitized wine thief. close the lid. dump the sample into the plastic tube your hydrometer came in and gently place your hydrometer in there. correct the reading if the temp isn't 68*. taste the sample.

Calm down. The beer is fine.

So I racked it into secondary over the weekend. I tasted it and it was pretty delicious so far. However, there was a slight metallic after taste. I'm not sure where this came from. I've never had any problems with my water or brew equipment in the past but I have read a little about yeast stress causing metallic flavors. If this is true, I'm sure that's where the flavors came from. Oh well. It's unfortunate but there's nothing I can do now.

I wouldn't sweat about a slight metallic taste in a beer that's not finished. It may drop out.

The metallic taste dropped out. It actually tastes pretty good. The beer is quite a bit darker than the actual 90 min and it's a lot more cloudy. I didn't use any Irish moss or anything like that so that's probably why. It smells pretty piney which is a little different than the original but the hoppy taste is almost right on. It lacks a little of the malty biscuit type flavor that the 90 min has. Not bad but I wouldn't spend the money on all the hops to do this particular recipe again.

My 90 min ipa was finished in 3 days. Rack to secondary then dry hop. It will be great. If your that worried let it sit for a week or two the rack to secondary and dry hop.
