I am brewing a winter warmer right now using a partial extract recipe. My OG was 1.089. It has been two weeks and I racked it to the secondary just now. My hydrometer is reading about 1.021.
The fermentation seemed quite active for about 4-5 days the first week. I originally added one smack pack of Wyeast 1056, and then at the advice of my local homebrew shop I added a pack of Safale US-05 Dry Ale Yeast about 48 hours after pitching the first yeast since I was nervous about too little yeast for a relatively bigger beer (target of 9% ABV). There was a good inch or so of yeast on the bottom of the primary, I had to sacrifice a little under a gallon to avoid sucking all that crud into the secondary.
Is that out of the ordinary to have that much of a drop in specific gravity in only two weeks? I have been told beers like these need months to ferment out properly.
This is my recipe
