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.
