Very cool, I'll give it a couple test runs next week.

Did you rehydrate prior to pitching? You can lose a lot of yeast by not rehydrating and it could be the reason for a slow start. Whenever I've used 05 and rehydrated, it took off pretty quick.
I've gone the other direction. I don't do late additions for those styles very often any more and always dry hop. I find that the dry hops give me much more of the aroma I'm looking for than late additions do.
I do a 30 minute whirlpool rest followed by a 15 minute knockout on beers that have flameout hops. I skip the extended rest on other beers and knockout after a five minute whirlpool.
