Lennie, cheers on making it work! And Steve, good idea on the marketing - if it tastes good, no one will ever know - it's genius!
I thought I'd post another data point for those that stumble upon this later.
I brewed a Cream Ale (close to the Jamil recipe, but not exact, with US-05) on 8/25/13, OG 1.051, fermented at 66F. On 9/2, I took a gravity reading through a 1/2" of krausen on 9/2 (8 days later) and read 1.016. I pulled it out of the fermentation chamber, kept it at room temperature (75F) and tossed in 1tsp of Fermaid-K. Two days later the krasuen fell and I took a gravity reading, it was 1.008. It's currently in for two days of crash cooling, then I'll gelatin in the keg while carbonating and serve it on September 14th for a party!
I think that makes for a 10 day ferment with a couple more days in there for 'polishing'.
