Default sexy dry hoppage

I've dry hopped two batches now and WOW! I love it.

I used Challanger pellets......and just dumped a 1/2 oz straight into the carboy right as the bubbler pretty much stopped bubbling.

Should I be using a bag? It tastes good without it.


And are there any better hops to dryhop with other than Challanger? Or is that a good one?


Also, is there a difference in pellet vs leaf when dryhopping?

FWIW, I'm bottle conditioning an IPA that I dry hopped with 1 oz. of Saaz. I used whole leaf and put them in a special long and narrow cotton bag made for dry hopping - it was really easy to remove and worked fine. Organic Cotton Dry Hop Bag - OCB7

The type of hop depends on the style... american IPA? Try Simcoe...

And your taste. cent, cascade, amarillo and summit are all good choices for APA or IPA. Each offers something a little different.

I like to use a bag for my hops. I have found that just dumping them in will clog my bottle wand when bottling, or clog my dip tube after kegging. If you don't have either of those problems, then go for it!

Kent Goldings are a very nice dry hop as well. Especially for Pale Ales

I just popped the lid on my Leftover Hops IPA that I oaked and dry hopped with 1 oz of Willamette. Beervana.

oaked eh? sounds yummy. How much oak, and what form did you use? I'm dry hopping a batch of brew right now, and its about 4 days in. This oaking business sounds like a good idea
