First stage of the dry hop went in tonight. Simcoe, Columbus, Amarillo, Centennial, and Apollo. Roused with CO2 wand and sealed up. Next set going in on the 20th. Then 4 more days and I'm going to get it carbed up a few days early because it's at TG.

Finally got ahold of some of this, and have the stirplate working on it now. This can doesn't have nearly the amount of debris of the can I had a year ago. And it doesn't taste quite the same either. I'm getting huge dank piney hops from this, with the emphasis way more toward dank than citrusy. I'm pretty sure on Chinook, at least as a dry hop. Cascade or Centennial, but not so much as to compete with the dankness. Columbus definitely.

I've been drinking some Headys that were canned on 4/29. The first one I had on 4/30 was very good, but a bit disappointing, as I was expecting an epiphany. The one I had on 5/1 was the best beer I've ever had. The aroma was very citrusy, not too dank, and the taste was perfectly balanced between malt, bitterness and residual sweetness. I've had a few more over the past two weeks, and the citrus has receded and the aroma is dank. The beer also seems more bitter than those first two cans. I'm looking at the dregs in my glass, and the widely dispersed sediment is now confined to the last sip, so perhaps it would be easier to culture now? I'm pretty amazed at how this beer has changed in less than 3 weeks since it was bottled.

I have verified there is no Chinook in the dry hop and am fairly sure John said there wasn't any Chinook in the beer either. But I wonder which characteristics in Heady made you think of Chinook?

Strong danky pine flavor.. I'm only familiar with Chinook providing that. I use Apollo in abundance, and it's not quite like that. Neither is Nugget. It's definitely used late in the boil if at all, because I absolutely detest Chinook as a bittering hop in any capacity, and can pick it out every time. I'm actually really confused by hop profile. It could be Nugget.

I'm with you on being confused. I too thought it was Chinook way back when and then John shut me down. I remember an email I sent him one time with a recipe that didn't have any Chinook in the boil or whirlpool but did in the dry hop and he said, "and get rid of that Chinook in the dryhop."

Those last few words always stuck with me. Why say dry hop specifically if that was the only mention I made to Chinook? Why not say, take out the Chinook? So then I put Chinook in the 5 min and whirlpool and didn't really care for it. Maybe I read too much into it.

I too was looking for the pine from it and some dank from Columbus. Never actually got that out of the final homebrew though, which to this day pisses me off. I haven't found the right amount of pine yet.

There's really only a few hops that I know of that produce piney flavor. The main one is Chinook. Northern Brewer also gives some pine. Nugget is more herbal and resiny. Actually I get a lot of pine from a large dose of Tettnanger, but I highly doubt that's in the beer. I'm going to have to try Chinook at flameout, I won't be able to rest until I do. On a happier note, my yeast harvesting seems to have been a success. The 1.030, 500ml starter is at high krausen after just 24 hours. I'm going to let it go another day, crash it for a couple, decant, build it up to 2L.
