Default Hop Along

I have read everywhere from three days to two weeks so, how long does everyone dry hop for? I am transfering to secondary with my Hop Juice DIPA soon and was just seeing if I could get a consensus on a good amount of time to dry hop for, and everyones favorite method (bag/no bag, add when racking/a few days before bottling).

Hail to the Hops

I like putting mine in when I transfer to secondary and leaving them in there until I bottle two weeks later. I'm leaning towards using a bag and some sanitized marbles for them. I've done a few with no bag, then put a bag over the autosiphon, but I always waste more this way.

Do you lose any aroma with them in there that long?

If not, that is what I would like to do.

i have put mine in the same way, free floating for 2 weeks when i rack to the secondary...

Does anyone do multiple hop additions through your secondary fermentation time? I have read about this- esp for DIPAs.

I dry hop in the keg and leave it there until the keg is finished, usually a week or two.
