just moved my batch to secondary and added the dry hops. It tastes awesome so far.
Do you think 1.5 weeks is too long on dry hops?

I've dry hopped different brews anywhere from 5 days up to 2 weeks. Shorter times will mean you won't get all of the benefits from the hops. My 5 day batch should have been longer. I try to dry hop for at least 1 week.

Longer periods don't have any negative effect (someone correct me if I'm wrong). In fact, I think at some point you really don't benefit from a longer period of time. I think 2 weeks is about at the point where longer won't do you any good.

If you leave the beer dry hopping for too long you can get grassy flavors out of them. I typically cut it off at 10 days tops.

Thanks for the advice. Trying to figure out when to bottle before or after vacation.

Just bought the grain for this today. New brewer here. This will be my 4th batch. I bought a variety of hops today. My last 2 batches have been EdWorts hause pale ales. Since they are heavy on the Cascade hops I thought I would play with some Centennial on this batch to learn a little about hop flavors.

This is what I am considering for a hop schedule:

60 min .5oz Centennial 9.7
40 min .5 oz Cascade 7.4
10 min .5oz Centennial 9.7
5 min .5 oz Cascade 7.4

Think this will make a good beer? I will boil around 6.5 gallons of wort BIAB.

Brewed this up this afternoon/evening. It is my 4th beer. Brew day went well other than a thunderstorm blowing up right when I started the boil. Fortunately i was in my car port. I don't think a little rain mist in the boil will hurt my beer.

I screwed up my sparge. I heated 3 gallons of water in my other pot forgetting that the grain will not fit in there with that much water. I wound up pouring some of the water over my grain bed in the bag lined strainer into the boil pot. By the time I got the bag into the sparge pot the water had cooled to around 160. I heated the boil pot to 170 and tea bagged the grain bag but could not put all of it in there without overflowing my pot. I wound up with 1.040 pre boil wort. Boiled it down to 5.5 gallons and it came out at 1.050.

I really liked the taste of my sample. I also wound up with 2 quart mason jars of unboiled wort that I squeezed out of my grain bag. Can I use these as yeast starters if I boil them first?

Thanks for the recipe. I liked the color of the wort.

Just wanted to update my version of your recipe. I basically made an AIPA since the IBU's are around 55. I am dry hoping it to help with a little aroma to go along withthe Bitterness I'm surprised how sweet this is even though the FG came out to 1.011. Taste pretty good though. I will make this one again but with correct hop ammounts.

OK, so I have never dry hopped in a keg before. Is it normal to be cloudy the whole time? This beer was clearing nicely before i added the hops. I put .5 oz in a tea ball.
