Try raising your fermentation temp to room temp AS SOON as your krausen begins to drop. Usually this is at the 3 day mark. Then make sure you leave it in primary 3 weeks. I think you will be pleased with the results.

Anyone see a problem with using S-04??
I think S-04 would work well with this.

no problem with 04, just not my first choice. it will be a slightly different beer but not bad. as far as dry yeast goes it would be my second choice.

I made an extract recipe for this, just brewed last night, its my 2nd brew:

steeping grains:
1 lb Crystal 20
1 lb Munich Light 10L

extracts:
3.15 lb Gold LME (from NB--contains some carapils)
6 lb Gold LME--added at end of boil
4 oz pilsen DME

hops:
1 oz Chinook 30 min
1.5 oz Cascade 30 min
1 oz Williamette 15 min
1.5 oz Cascade 15 min
1 oz Williamette 5 min
2 oz Cascade dry hop in secondary

I also put in a teaspoon of Irish moss at 15 min. I left out the carapils since the Gold LME has some in it, and I left out the torrified wheat, since it has to be mashed, hopefully its not super important. Used US-05 and its bubbling away nicely. Adding the 6 lbs LME at the end of the boil should help with hops utilization since I only have a 3 gal boil.

Just took a sample of this beer after four days of pitching. I used a second generation of washed us-05 and its almost done fermenting already.

This beer is amazing and I wish it would hurry up cause I need this in my life right now!!! I know a little dramatic but it's really good and I expect this to be my best brew to date. Thanks for the recipe.

Thanks! good advice. I'm becoming more of a believer in just letting the beer sit in primary undisturbed for at least two weeks to really let the yeast finish the job and clean up. Planning to let this IPA sit for two weeks then drop in my 1oz of cascade to dry hop in primary for another week. then bottle. Mmmm....
