Whoa, you brewed yesterday and want to keg on Saturday? If the beer was under 1.040 og you could be in good shape, but you really risk some of flavors if you don't let them clean up their mess.

I'm glad you are keeping at it! You don't need to rinse the steeping grains but you can. Just don't use water over 170f as you might extract some tannins. I usually just put them I'm a colander and...

Stores often just toss in 5oz of sugar which is usually too much. You should probably be using a calculator to figure out how much sugar to add. That way you can also use the amount that is...

I would do the light or golden DME also. You don't really know what is in there and if you are doing a mash it is nice to have full control over the malt flavor. I agree on dropping the rye to 20%....

This is true for most yeasts. However, I just brewed a 7.6% saison with wyeast3711 and that baby chewed through the priming sugar and was carbed in a week. But that yeast is a monster attenuator....

How long have they been in the fridge before you open them? How much sugar did you prime with?

I can't believe you have waited this long. As it is a wheat beer, my guess is it is done and ready. Pop a few in the fridge and see how it is!

This doesn't seem like a very versatile yeast. You will get banana and clove which don't suit many styles. I'd only use it for wheat beers.

80-85 is super high for some yeast strains. I can't imagine fermenting us-05 at those temps. My guess is that you would get a lot of fusel alcohol which seems to be what you are describing.

Vienna is a base malt, so you can't overdo it. I love the taste when it is used as the only base.
