Cool, I'm optimistic like you, david. I used Crystal because A) I had some on hand, and B) Papazian's Oatie Stout recipe actually called for, coincidentally, dry hopping w/ crystal pellets. But that recipe also called for "lagering" the ale for a couple months, which I didn't have the capacity to do at the time. So, hopefully, bottle conditioning will take its place. Since I have extra space in my lagerator (not enough for another carboy, but enough for a few sixers and big bottles), I think I'll actually "lager" some of it in bottle and see what happens.
