I brewed this Alphaking clone. It is still in the primary, fermented for two weeks, and then dry hopped (in a sanitized grain bag) for one week. So, its been three weeks. This is my first solo brew, and this looks a little cloudy to me. What do you guys think? Temp has been steady around 68 degrees and it has been covered, I moved up to rack to bottling bucket tomorrow.

Yeah, it sort of looks cloudy to me, but I have a hard time telling when it's in large volumes like that. Leaving it another week won't hurt.

Almost looks like there is still some activity looking at the top of it.

Looks cloudy, leave it at least another week. Don't worry about the dry hops, it will be fine.

Cold crash if you lack the patience to wait.

what's the OG?

That beer may have benefited from longer primary.
