You can add that stuff in the primary as well. I regularly dry hop in the primary.

I get clear beer with just a primary. If you have gunk out of the primary you are probably not racking carefully enough.

Late extract addition may or may not effect you IBU's. It's debatable...

I think you moved it to the secondary too soon. You don't want to move a beer out of the primary fermenter until it has reached it's final gravity. You didn't leave enough yeast to finish the...

I add 0.5lb sugar for every 1lb DME after the original 6lb LME/5lb DME. No more than 1lb for most styles. Should dry out to around 1.010. I would go up to 2lb for a Belgian style.

From Wyeast's own site. (http://www.wyeastlab.com/rw_yeaststrain_detail.cfm?ID=60)



I think the strain is great for Saison's but it is just to much of a pain to deal with.

The airlock bubbling doesn't mean it is still fermenting. The only way to tell if it is still fermenting is to check the gravity a couple days apart.

You should be fine. I wouldn't recommended doing anything with it either way but with a beer that low you shouldn't have any problems.

You may have some issues with the dark extract fermenting. ...

If you give us the recipe(or at least the fermentables) and the yeast we can give advice with a more detailed reason. Without a recipe all we can say is your best bet is to just let it go.

A little more information about your recipe would help. I would just leave it. I don't try to make adjustments after the yeast is pitched.

You shouldn't need other yeast. In the future I wouldn't make a starter with dry yeast. Making a starter can actually be detrimental to dry yeast.

I think the main culprit was the grains. I...

You may have under-pitched. I would have used 2 packets of dry yeast. Not sure if you did.

You added enough sugar to get the beer down to 1.015

The yeast matters. Sometimes a lot less than others. I honestly use US-05 for most of the beer I make. In a hoppy beer any flavor the yeast impart is likely to be overpowered buy the hops.

Between 60m and 20m is no mans land for hops. They will not add much bitterness and most flavor aroma boils off. They do add something but not enough of either that it is worth doing for most...
