When I checked the gravity at Day 12 there was still krausen remnants, but by Day 14 it had completely fallen in. I know US-05 likes to hang around.

As far as gelatin, it is a clearing agent that you add to cold beer a few days before kegging or bottling. Here is a thread:

and a youtube video:

I cold crashed my beer for two days in primary, racked it to secondary on top of the gelatin, then put it back in my fridge for another two days and kegged. Some people add the gelatin directly to the keg and skip the secondary step all together. I had the extra carboy, space in my fridge, and the time so i figured I'd just get as much yeast removed from suspension as possible, and not have to worry about stirring it up if I needed to move the keg around later.

Has anyone tried adding in some hops at about 10 minutes ? I was thinking of chinook maybe an ounce since I like blondes that have been poured through whole leaf chinook .

Under $20 with yeast for a 5gallon batch! Substituting Crystal with Mt. Hood

I'd be careful not to over hop this one. On one batch I tried an ounce of cascade at 60 minutes and the cascade's citrus note overwhelmed the little bit of malt in this one. My favorite with this recipe is to split one ounce of centennial over 60, 15 and 5 minutes to bring IBU to 19 - 20; a bit over the upper limit for this style, iirc.

Brewed today with Willamette and Mount hood. Smelled,looked and tasted great. Now the wait begins.

Homebrewing will definitely teach patience.
