Racked mine 4 days ago on top of the AE.

The first day there wasn't much action, since then there is a foam layer at the top of the fermenter and you can see visible bubbles moving from the bottom to the top.

It sounds like the general guideline is to leave it on the AE for nearly 2 weeks to let it clean up

That's correct. Also, don't be alarmed at first taste, that there is a parched dryness. This fades within days to a week after kegging or bottling.

This stuff really keeps the fermentation going. I put my AE in a week ago and I still have airlock activity.

Just took a sample after being on the AE for one week. The gravity only moved from 1.008 to 1.006.

I had a some good activity in there too... Still have a little more time to let it sit.

So I'm currently bringing the brew up into the diacetyl rest zone. Funny, pre-AE there was no hint of it (at around 1.010), and now it's popcorn.

I'm also dry-hopping it (with liberty), and I get hints of great hop aroma through the butter when I swirl the glass. I'm wondering though if the hops in the fermenter will impede the clean-up of DA or somehow "soak up" the DA making it harder to clean it up - ?

If your AE is good it will clean it up. You should see airlock activity, but it will be quite slow. Use a flashlight and look for tiny bubbles rising.

Let the AE do its thing. Post AE there will be slight parched dryness that will fade shortly after bottling or kegging.

I sent this as a PM to the original poster but thought I would post it on the thread as well...

Hey, I am looking to brew this beer for my dad. I just had a couple questions.

1. Does this end up being super hoppy with all of the additions?

2. When I put everything into the hopville calculator, it says that the ABV will be 2.9%... The recipe states that it will be above 4%?

3. I know that you state that you add the amylase enzyme in the secondary. Do you do it for the full 14 days?

4. When did you add and for how long in regards to dry hopping?

Sorry for all of the noobish questions... this is only my second all grain and I don't want to screw it up!

Thanks for all of your help!
