I very regularly wait 3 weeks or more in primary with my low gravity beers and a month or more on my higher ones. There is really no reason to do a secondary unless you need your primary for another...

I had a Blonde Ale sitting in primary over two months due to work/laziness. As long as your airlock doesn't dry out, you should be fine. :tank:

Like the others said, a gravity reading is really the only reliable way to determine if your beer is finished fermenting. As far as kegging, once you are sure fermentation is over, you'll want to...

I'm willing to bet that you didn't mix your honey in as well as you thought. Honey usually completely ferments, so depending on how much yeast was still in suspension, you may have just created some...

It's sitting a little over 5%, which is about right for a Hefeweizen. Taste it and see. My Hefe usually finishes right around 1.015~1.016, but I'm usually at 1.055 or so for my OG. :mug:

I don't have a Blichmann, but I do 5 gallon batches in my 15 gal kettle all the time, I usually have about 7ish gallons pre-boil and I have no problem covering the thermometer even after the boil.

Make sure your mash tun valve is closed before you put your strike water in :cross:

Other than that, add grain slowly when you are mashing in to help prevent dough balls. Drain your runnings...

Yea just pick it up and dump it in. Or use something to tilt the kettle while you siphon it. I used to use a sanitized pitcher to get my wort from kettle to carboy, but have since upgraded to a...

At the very least you would want to add some rice hulls. I normally do 10% barley (I usually go for Crystal 20 for color) and half a pound of rice hulls in a 5 gallon batch. I've never had a stuck...

Hefe is usually good fresh so I would just chalk it up to experience, adding more sugar and waiting longer will change this beer, and it may not make it any better

I would wait at least 2 weeks before racking to a secondary, especially if you're at 60F while fermenting. Just because airlock stopped bubbling doesn't mean that the yeast are finished. What was...
