Also consider your end goal. If it is to make great beer for you to enjoy in your own home, I'd just shake it and enjoy in 3 weeks.

If you are trying to perfect yeast techniques / move into...

Agree with answers 2 and 3 above.

For 1, even with recirculating and controlling for heat, your efficiency will be off if you don't sparge, Even if you put all the water in at once. That is...

Right, and also make sure your yield was correct. If you didn't get as much as you thought the OG is probably on the higher end, and if you got more than planned, it's probably on the lower end. It's...

Yeah, according to that calc, your bitterness is goig to be too high for a pale. You could either change the bittering hops or change the amount to, say .75 oz if you have an accurate scale. Could...

Yeah, the iodine rinse is probably not helping. Also, you can get astringency if your sparge water is too hot, has improper pH or if you over sparge while fly sparging. But, I'm not sure that this...

i'd recommend tossing in the hallertauer at 10mins, dry hopping with some of the provided columbus and 1oz of citra. It will be a fantastic beer.

Right, again, not saying it is very likely, but it is still a risk, and why would you risk it and age this beer a whole year when it is really done in 3 months?

Also curious if this is a 5 gallon or 3 gallon batch. And does the kit come with dry hops already. That ounce of whole leaf Citra in 5 gallons will be surprisingly aromatic.

That being said, in...

concur with above. Longer D rest shouldn't hurt, and at 75% attenuated, you should be in the clear. I also will chill the beer down while still in primary then transfer after a day or so, makes for...

That seems possible yes. Especially if it was in the swamp cooler, as that thing is probably ripe for mold spores. Possible, but I would still think waking the yeast back up might fix it.
