what was your gravity @ 3 weeks? and at what temp did you ferment?

I ask because my clone is 2 weeks into primary (at 64-66F) and the krausen has JUST receded. I've never seen a yeast produce a krausen for that long. no lag either - It was bubbling within 12 hours of pitching. It's the first time I've used bell's yeast - I cultured a starter from the bell's amber. Has anyone else's done this? Is bell's yeast just slow? I just sampled it at ~1.020 (OG was 1.063). Hopefully it will get down some more, I know the OP says at least a month in primary but 10 points seems like a lot given that the primary has ended.

Mine got down to 1.014 after 3 weeks. I used WLP051 because I have no way of getting a culture...(No Bell's in MD....).

Got another second place finish with this one. This time it was the Queen of Beer competition. Also this beer has really brought my S/O around to IPAs. Thanks again eschantz.

3.00 lb Light Dry Extract (8.0 SRM) Dry Extract 30.00 %
4.00 lb Pale Malt (2 Row) US (2.0 SRM) Grain 40.00 %
2.00 lb Vienna Malt (3.5 SRM) Grain 20.00 %
0.50 lb Caramel/Crystal Malt - 20L (20.0 SRM) Grain 5.00 %
1.00 oz Centennial [11.50 %] (Dry Hop 7 days) Hops -
1.25 oz Centennial [11.50 %] (60 min) Hops 46.2 IBU
1.00 oz Centennial [11.50 %] (15 min) Hops 18.3 IBU
1.00 oz Centennial [11.50 %] (5 min) Hops 7.4 IBU
1.00 oz Centennial [11.50 %] (1 min) Hops 1.6 IBU
0.50 lb Corn Sugar (Dextrose) (0.0 SRM) Sugar 5.00 %


Measured Original Gravity: 1.066 SG
Measured Final Gravity: 1.013 SG
Estimated Alcohol by Vol: 6.40 % Actual Alcohol by Vol: 6.92 %
Bitterness: 73.5 IBU
Est Color: 7.1 SRM
I just brewed this finally this evening. It was my first stovetop minimash and I tried to convert it myself. I had some difficulty getting my target temp on the mash though I hope i didnt go too high. I am hoping to hit 1.015. My SG was 1.063. It will probably be slightly darker than two hearted too but a small sample tasted pretty good. It was my first IPA and I used some 2009 whole hops from hopsdirect. Those things soak up wort like crazy.

eschatz, have you been able to verify this? Just curious...

i was just impatient i guess...i racked into secondary for dry hopping after 3 weeks @ 64F and the SG was at 1.013. sample tasted awesome...can't wait to drink this!

I just checked my gravity after 7 days and it was down to 1.014, which was pretty surprising to me. Anyone think it would be okay to dry hop in a couple days, let the hops sit for 7 days then bottle around next thursday? I was looking to have this ready the week after thanksgiving if possible. Or will an extra week before dry hopping really improve this?
