When dry hopping how long do the hops last before they stop departing the good flavors?
I dryhop for 3-7 days usually, with my goal being around 5 days. Usually three days is enough (at room temperature) but I go for 5 to make sure! After 7 days, you can start to get a bit of grassy flavors in the beer but it usually don't get pronounced until after about 14 days. Again, this is at room temperature. Fridge temps take longer, so if you're dryhopping in a keg for example, it will take longer.
