Quick question, I apologize if this was already listed.

If a chilled recipe calls for a flameout addition and a dry hop, when I convert to No-Chill using the hop chart, I would move both of these additions to a dry-hop? Is there benefit from dryhopping with 2 oz instead of 1 oz? Thanks in advance.

What I do sometimes is add one ounce dry-hop, then wait a few days and add the second. It may all be in my head, but I think I get a larger "spectrum" of hop flavor/aroma.

But adding the ounce to dry-hop, or not doing it, either way is probably fine.

Pol, I just got my wynpak, do I seal the hot wort in it and let it cool, or do I install the stopper, airlock and sanitized cotton ball to let pressure equalize? I was a little worried about vacuum, but I had hoped the wynpak could handle it. Please advise

You can (and should) seal the Winpak with hot wort in it. They're tough containers.

Oxyclean. But I don't have a winpak, i have a short and squaty cube. So I just use a bottle brush on it.

when i do no chill(been doing it for a long time although i only store the wort untill its cool rnough to pitch, not weeks/months like some people), i usually keep the hop schedule the same for the recipe but usually just remove the hop bag a minute or 2 after flameout

That surprises me... I have to change the hop schedule, since the length of time at near boiling temps is still giving me isomerization.

What-ever...

WinPaks can handle the boiling temps and vaccuum and pop right back, over and over again.

Some people install airlocks and cotton, but I like to fill the WinPak, then seal it up and flip it upside down to heat sanitize the top for 20 minutes or so, then flip it back over. Try doing that with an ailock!

I will be doing this live on a webcast tomorrow.
