If it were me, I'd wait at least a total of 2 weeks in the primary, and that is only if you're rushing. I like 3 weeks...then dry hop in the secondary for a week. Or, just dry hop int he primary.

Primarily, you want to cool it fast so you can pitch your yeast and let the fun begin.

Pale Ale Fermentation Temp Question?

So, I brewed an English Bitter and used Nottingham. For whatever reason I've come to fermenting ales, especially with Notty (and b/c of my house), at around 60-62F. So this batch went for 6-7 days...

Don't give up just yet. You're tasting 3 week old flat beer, it just isn't going to taste that great. If it smells good, I think it will taste good in the end.
