Thought I read somewhere that whole hops tend to have a grassy flavor in beer. I just searched this site and it seems if you dry hop for a longer period (over 2 weeks) you can geta grassy flavor from any hop. So I guess just use whatever hop you want and dry hop it for a couple weeks

I also heard that if you first wort your hops, which for extract, doesn't meant too much, but I guess starting with them in your pot with your steeping grains maybe?
Another note, that I saw is that the brewery uses a lot of Marris Otter grain, not sure what specifically that is, sorry, I'm still green.

I routinely leave whole hops bagged in kegs for a couple months without my beers getting grassy. It may be that the lower temps prevent the issue, but I suspect that it is that they are whole hops.

Grassiness can come from leaving dry hops in for longer than the usual 7-10 days.

Have you ever had this happen, or are you just repeating something you read? If you had it happen what was the situation, how many ounces of hops, whole or pellet, what sort of beer, what was the temperature?

I don't buy the whole blanket grassiness argument. It hasn't been my experience at all.

I had it happen on a Chinook IPA that was using pellet hops. around 1.5-2 oz hops in a 5 gal batch. This was a long time ago though on a kit and I left it for close to a month when I got busy. Was still drinkable, but the grassy notes took over the beer compared to the usual pine & citrus Chinook gives. I honestly haven't left it for more than 14 days since that time, so that's my only data point.

It seems like it is always pellet hops that cause the problem, so that is the hypothesis I'm sticking to.
