Is it bad that i've had 10 gallons of this in my primary for 2 weeks and I think I should probably brew it again REALLY SOON?

Brewing this today! Quick question. What's the point of only brewing the extract for 15 minutes?

Pumped about this beer! After 12 days the gravity was right at 1.020, which with an OG of 1.072 puts it at 6.8% ABV. It tastes awesome! Bitterness was a tad harsh in the aftertaste, but up front is amazing. I'm sure when I add the vanilla bean, it'll smooth out.

Mashed this at 156-158 with US-05 finished at 10.20 which is right where I wanted down from 10.63

I added 4oz dutch cocoa powder at 1 min which I had slowly stirred into a simmering saucer pan of water until it was a nice chocolate syrup. This was I had zero clumping issued and all the cocoa mixed perfectly with the wort.

Now I just added 4 oz of cacao nibs and a chopped up vanilla bean that I have been soaking in vodka for 3 days. Added in a muslin bag and let it suspend in the primary ala dry hopping.

Pretty pumped, think this is gonna be good! Nice and sweet to give a base for the chocolate and vanilla
