This is a question that has been asked over and over, I'm aware of that...fermentation time. I have this brown ale in my fermenting bucket and it's been there for 9 days now. I took a gravity reading on saturday and it showed 1.009, and the reading today (monday) still shows 1.009. So, I guess it says fermentation is completed since a couple of days. The three brews I have done before this I have had 17-21 days in fermentor, mainly because I wanted to dry hop them, and wanted to be on the safe side. But, how long do I have to let this one stay in the fermentor before I can prime and bottle it? (I'm not going to dry hop this one...) I read about "cleaning up phase" of the yeast, some say it's important and some even say it's a "myth". Sure, I can wait 3 weeks for this one too, but if 2 weeks is enough...then 2 weeks it will be.
