I've read mixed opinions about dry hopping while fermentation is still active. Does it matter for this beer?

I would ferment 2 weeks, then dry hop in primary for 4 days. That is my routine. When you say "active" I think of a huge krausen 2 days into fermenting. I certainly wouldn't do anything like that.

It's been a week but I'm still getting bubbles every ten seconds or so, but I'll just wait another week.

Bubbles don't mean it is fermenting. Bubbles just mean that CO2 is escaping. Without checking gravity, you don't know if the CO2 is from new fermentation, old fermentation with CO2 just now coming out of solution, or simply a change in atmospheric pressure.

Personally, I don't like messing with my beer and only check gravity when I bottle so every beer spends 3 weeks in primary. If I am dry hopping I just figure that backwards from bottling day.

Hoping to brew this today or tomorrow! Will be my first AG so I'm a bit nervous. Substituting williamette for fuggles cause my local store was out. Also crystal 20 for 60 cause I'm a newb and screwed up. Still hoping it will turn out good. Will check back later.

brewed this about 6 weeks ago, still enjoying it. have about 7 bottles left. very tasty. planning to brew it again but I'm considering trying WLP007 dry English ale yeast instead of 001 or US05. wouldn't mind just a touch more malt backbone. I've also heard that 007 attenuates like a beast and then drops out fast and hard leaving a nice clear beer.

So I brewed this up yesterday. I ended up with a 1.062ish gravity, which I'm not sure is good or not? I also screwed up and added fuggles at 30 mins instead of chinook cause I grabbed the wrong bag. So I added chinook at 15. I also only did a 60 min boil. Color was darker than I thought but I assume that's cause of the crystal 60. Had to try a sample and it tasted amazing. So I'm not to worried about the taste. I just hope the abvs are there.

Forgot to mention I missed my mash temp by 2 degrees so I mashed an extra 30 mins. I forgot to take a gravity reading after sparging. I also didn't iodine test my wort. I tasted a bit and it was sweet( I know that doesn't necessarily mean it was done). I didn't have any iodine though.

Do you guys think I will get any abv?
