I'm done here. The guy posts pictures of his stuff to try and win pissing contests and quotes himself multiple times in his own signature. LOL.
Oh and temperature controlled room needs swamp cooler.

Op here's a simple rules of.thumb from my own experience Ive observed my brew ferment in 5 days I personally let it sit 7 total days until I see the yeast slow done or what appears to be stopped. Then I rack it over into another carboy and other add hops or I simply let it set for an additional 7 days so I.drink my brews in about 14 days depending on the style. I've made the same mistake on bottling to early and had gushers. A lot of brewing is personal choices we make not that we are doing things wrong or right just have fun with it. 14 days is plenty of time for simple recipes and styles and once you get the handle on the fermenting process you'll make great beers in the end.

Ill keep this very simple since you 2 could not figure it out, 2 different temps in the same room.

As to taking samples from the primary, I use a sterilized turkey baster. Don't return the sample to the fermenter, drink it. Share it with your significant other, children and friends. Drinking beers at the various stages, from the wort to the bottling bucket, will tell you a lot about how your beer progresses, and if done with every batch, you can identify if the beer is progressing as it should. For that matter, I suggest tasting everything that goes into beer, the malt or malt extract, hops, and yeast. That way you can tell the difference between ingredients and how they affect the final taste of the beer. I am continually surprised by the number of brewers who have never dipped their finger into the extract bag or can, or have not chewed on the malt. Hops are particularly tasty, but the difference between types are pretty obvious when tasting them.

+1 I agree 100% with you, Always taste your samples, I also taste all my ingredients before I use them, its a great practice!

Cheers
