The airlock has no bearing on how long a beer should ferment. I'd let it sit for another week then check your gravity. If it stays the same for a few days then you are ready to bottle.

I was there a couple of months ago. We hit the Hofbrauhaus and we loved it. It's not really regional, but was fun. That's if you like German beer. I had the Original(Munich Helles) & Oktoberfest and...

I'd personally use the 28qt as an HLT and 15g as the BK. Trying to boil in a pot that is too small is a real pain and messy as hell. That's been my experience anyway.

I use 1/4LB of Whole Beans in 5.5 Gallon Batch. Right in the Primary for 3 Days. The coffee flavor is very upfront, but not offensive.

It depends on what strain it is and how many grams are in the packet. But you are better off over pitching a little rather than under pitching. You can use the Pitch Rate Calculator on mrmalty.com to...

I feel the same way, seems like a big mess in the making. But the best thing to do is brew a batch and see how it goes. You'll know right away if it's something you want to deal with. I used to hate...

1. If your burner is wide open the whole time there is a chance you could be scorching the wort. Try and get a regulator for that thing. What kind of burner is it?

I've done a few beers using Centennial for Bittering and I always find it to be a really harsh bittering hop. Not sure why but that is how it always comes across for me. It's great later in the boil...

Man that really sucks, I can't imagine a place will last long with those prices. I'd hate to hear what the total was if you add in your fuel costs.

There is certainly nothing wrong with your recipe, but I'd personally cut the 2oz of Citra in the DH to 1oz, or maybe even a 1/2oz. I have never used Summit but when I want Piney I always go for...

Hoppy as in too bitter? I see you have a 75 & 60 minute addition, maybe that was too much. What was your OG?

Maybe with all those different varieties of hops some of the flavors are clashing. Just...

RonPopeil makes a good point, Citra is a great hop, but can definitely be overdone. I do a Chinook,Simcoe & Citra IPA that comes out pretty good. I only use 1 1/2oz of Citra in it, but I want to bump...

Another one for a bigger bittering addition. I'd personally move some of the 20 Minute addition into the 60, and shoot for about 50 IBU's(Or more) from the 60 Minute addition.
