i'll let you know how it turns out

I would recomend bottling based on hydrometer readings instead of days that have past. You might get 100 batches based on time with no problems before you get one that starts turning your beer into glass gernades

Does one need to be concerned about sanitation with hops when dryhopping? I guess that was originally part of the appeal of hops (bacteriostatic), but I'd be kinda leery of putting anything not specifically sanitized in the fermenter.

Naw, just open a fresh bag and dump them in. If you are really concerned about it, you could always sanitize the outside of the bag, and the scissors you use to cut it open with.

The hops themselves no. If you use a grain bag, you'll need to boil the bag and then you can put the hops in them.
