I don't think I would intentionally oxidize mostly fermented beer. Rousing the yeast is ok, but not trying to introduce oxygen.

Ha, hey I'm with you, the sooner the better... and if the flavor is the same then heck yeah, I'm force carbing... What was your method of force carb? Would 30 PSI for 24 hours work?

Looking at the two bottles I picked up yesterday. Bottled 1/10/13.

Will be tasting against my clone bottled 2/9/13.

This is my second but I missed my OG by 8 points.. so i might wind up more with the Union Jack. Still trying to get a feel for my AG setup.

@samandbekah Mine usually needs 36 hours @ 30psi and then i dial it back. I typically don't shake my kegs although i did on this one. Patience isn't my strong suit especially when I'm out of homebrew.

You should be able to drink it the day you keg it.... You may see it get better over the next couple weeks but it will hit a point where the hop aroma and flavor will fall off so the quicker you can get to drinking the better with the hoppy beers like this. If you have a clean ferment you will be primed to drink immediately. Like Skeezer said adequate cell count and O2 with a controlled temp and you should see success. Good luck and I suggest brewing his Stone 15th Anniversary clone recipe too, that is the best beer I have ever made.

I'm looking for a little insight on what everyone's doing for the dry hop. My plan is to add the 1st addition and then the second after 3 days. Then keg after 7 more days. 10 days total dry hop time.

I don't have much experience with double dry hop additions and am looking for any advice.
