I just sampled my first batch of this. Only been bottled for a week, but I couldn't wait. The results were outstanding - tastes, smells and looks just like Flower Power. Nice job on the recipe.

Yeah, Flower Power!! That's why I keep brewing it. As far as fermentation and dry hopping-- I do 1 week in primary, then rack to a secondary with leaf hops(just put them in)-- 1 ounce of amarillo, simcoe, chinook. I have used pellet hops for dry hopping, but those I put in a hop bag, however, they were a bitch to get out of the carboy when it was done. I dry hop for 7-10 days as well. When I rack to a keg, I always put a paint strainer bag on my auto-siphon just so I don't pick up any leaf or hop pellet residue--it doesn't bother me really, but some people like it without, so I just eliminate it with a paint strainer bag-- it works great. Enjoy.

So you're drinking it in about 3 weeks right? That's what I've been doing with my hoppy beers.

Yeah, I can't wait any longer than that, I'm way to impatient. I've even forced carbed the keg for 24hrs and then I was drinking it in 2 weeks. It's better if I wait a week in the keg at 10-12psi though, so that's what I do now.

No, that's possible--it ferments pretty fast. I usually leave it in the primary for 7 days and then check gravity, but yes it is usually done on day 4 or 5. You can dry hop, whenever you feel it is at FG. You didn't do anything wrong, enjoy.

Why do you think it should be higher? Yeast eats how and when it wants. Sometimes short and fast other times long and slow. At 1.010 you'll just have a drier beer, nothing wrong with it just won't be "full".

What was your mash temperature, maybe a bit low? I wouldn't worry about it, it tastes good that is all the matters.
