After giving the fermenter a swirl, it dropped down to 1.011, and stayed there for a couple of days, and the yeast has started to drop out.  Before, I could not see the hydrometer through the beer, but now I can.  I went ahead and dry hopped it when it was stable, and started the cold crash this morning.  I plan to add gelatin on Saturday, and bottle after I brew on Sunday.  The last sample tasted freaking awesome.  Plenty of hop flavor and aroma, and the bitterness was not over the top.

Awesome!  Always exciting waiting for a new batch to drink.
