Ok it's been a week in the primary and the activity has stowed to 1 bubble/ 21 seconds. What is the consensus time to rack to secondary and Dry Hop or wait 3 more days? SG was 1.021 on 12/27 PM(OG1.071-12/23 PM)

1.021 sounds like it has a bit more to go..I would wait another day or two and re-check

I plan on brewing this tomorrow and I am having a small but pressing problem:
The recipe has a total of 13.40 lbs. I plan on mashing in with 1.25Qts per LB, bringing me to about 4.2 gallons in the mash. This should give me about 3.5 gallons or so of first runnings. If I sparge with roughly the same amount of water that will bring me to about 7 gallons in the kettle. I will lose about a gallon to boiloff which puts 6 gallons in the fermenter, one more gallon than I want. ProMash shows the proper IBU's, ABV, etc. but I can't seem to figure out how to get the wort down to 5 gallons within a 60 minute boil.
Hopefully someone will shed some light as I plan on brewing this tomorrow morning.
Thanks everyone!

I'd boil a gallon or so off, then start my timing for my 60 minute boil. You need the malt in this one to make it work, so I wouldn't reduce the amount of the boil.

OK Yooper that makes sense. I guess that the "60 Minute IPA" Title comes from when the hops are first added to the boil, not the entire boiling time.
Thanks again for the recipe I am certainly looking forward to brewing it. I will let you guys know how it goes.

OK I just finished brewing the recipe. My efficiency was 78% which is great and the boils and everything went smoothly.
Until I forgot to drain about a half gallon of star san solution from my carboy before racking to it!!!
Is this going to ruin my beer? I know it must have diluted it because my original gravity went all the way down to 1.060 instead of the expected 1.072. Please let me know if I am screwed or not. I also used 2 vials of White Labs WLP001 yeast because I thought my gravity would be over 1.072. I wonder what that is going to do now that the gravity is much lower.
Also, I noticed that I lost about a gallon or so of wort in my kettle that was mixed in with the cold break. How do I get that precious wort to come out?
Thanks for the help, I really hope 5 hours of work isn't shot on one stupid star san mistake.

The star san won't be a problem what so ever. I've read several stories where guys rack on top of that much or even more and the beer comes out just fine. Basically with the PH of the beer, the star san will break down into yeast nutrients, so you should have happy yeast!!

And two vials, no problem. Pretty much the equivalent of a yeast starter, and I normally use a starter on all my beers, even down to 1.050. Might wanna keep a close eye on it for blowoffs.

As far as the wort stuck, I'm not sure. I use a hop stopper and it gets dang near everything out of my kettle. May want to look into one. I love mine.

Wow fantastic Lorena!!! Thank you for sharing. I did my FG sample while kegging and almost poured a pint while it is flat!

Glad you are liking it so far! I'm drinking one really early- I think I made it the day after you did, Chris, and I kegged it and dry hopped it one day last week. It's young, and I need to wait- but it sure is good! I hope you like the final product.
