If it's a normal alcohol beer, most of the heavy fermentation could be over in 36 to 48 hours if everything was just right. It's probably still working, just at a much slower pace. I'd let it settle...

I like big. mostly because of the boil over factor but also the more water you can use in the boil the less sugar concentration and less chance for scorching on the bottom. That said, something with...

Turns out Phred is a bittering hop. I took about 12 cones and a qt of water started to boil some aroma but not really what I was hoping for. Boiled for about 50 minutes, let cool and tasted about 1/4...
