comment Minimal airlock activity
Do NOT shake your fermenter if the yeast has already starting working. Doing so could oxygenate new beer and you do NOT want that. Wietze is right that you certainly can shake that vat just before/just after you pitch. But once the yeast starts, leave it alone. :)

comment How much time to dry hop and why?
"Aggressive hops" aren't really a factor here. You're not getting alpha acids when you dry hop. So, there "power" is mostly subjective/based on the flavor profile.

comment Can I make urwagwa?
Additionally, if you are going to ferment for only 24 hours, the only way you'll prevent bottle bombs is to get it very very warm - 80+. That's probably still not going to enough to finish it, unless there's going to be very little sugar in those bananas.

Sorghum is available in the US - it's mildly popular in the south. It's also gettable on Amazon.

comment Too long in Primary Fermentation?
That's really an old brewers' tale at this point. Yeast quality improvement is likely the reason no one really worries about this anymore.

Assuming this is Denny's BVIP, he recommends drinking it young and not aging it. Even if I wanted to age it, I'm not sure I could. It's too good young.

One more tack on to my comments. Next time, drop the bourbon in when you package (keg/bottle/whatever). My experience is that makes a much better beer.

All that being said, it's not going a ton lower than 1.032 if memory serves. It's not a beer that finishes particularly dry. I'm seeing 1.019, but I don't think mine dried out that much.
