I'm going to try using the BIAB method in the coming weeks once I get all the equipment for it (bag). It'll be my first BIAB attempt.

I've made through around 200 pages of this post. Some people are saying they bottled/kegged after 9 days, some are saying wait 2 weeks (or longer). I'll be bottling. Is 9 days in primary really long enough for this recipe?

Yep

I go grain to glass with it in 10 days when I need a beer quickly. It is a bit cloudy in that short of time but it settles out after a few days in the keg. I never bottled it, but I bet that 7-10 and then bottle conditioned would be pretty solid

Thanks for the quick reply. Looks like I'll be stopping at the LHBS to pick up some corn sugar and extra bottles on the way home.

I was going to ask the same, I only brewed this a week ago today, but it's been done for about 4 days and I was considering bottling it this weekend to free up a fermenter.

I should have added, I used Wyeast 1056. I read a few replies that said that needed a little longer to finish fermenting.

1056 will take a little longer to ferment. But the beer will clear faster.

I always make it with Notty, but when it's done, it's done

It was at 1.006, seemed reasonably clear, and tasted damn fine, so I went for it and bottled. Here's hoping for no bottle bombs!

This is now my third brew I've bottled, and I've learned that bottling ~5 gallons at a time is getting old fast. Time to start investing in kegs.

Well I re-brewed this on Sunday to replace the infected batch which now languishes in my septic tank.

The dumped batch used the last of my Simcoe, so this one has Centennial as the 60/30 additions and Citra as the 15/5 additions. Fermented with a new pack of Notty, pitched on Sunday and gravity checked this evening as 1.010. Moved to the fridge to cold crash, I'll rack it over to a keg Monday or Tuesday.
