OK, so a secondary isn't needed if you are dry hopping?

This one is going on my list of "on deck" brews.

I dry hop all the time without racking to secondary. You'll only get off flavors if you leave it on the yeast cake for many months (dead yeast vs. dormant yeast). I find secondary is a way to get your beer off of things like a mesh bag of orange puree or to get more clarity. Secondary is also another opportunity for one to infect a beer.

Awesome. That makes this one a little easier to plan. I was thinking I would have to time it so I had an empty fermentor in 2 weeks.

It does make it a lot easier to plan. I have 6 carboys and I keep them all full, so it would get complicated if I kept needing an empty for transfer.

Secondary helps clear up beers and allows you to do some swirling when dry hopping. I always go to secondary. Chance of infection is negligible

Yes. I always secondary when dry hopping. My routine is this - cold crash the primary, siphon into a bucket fermenter with a paint strainer sack full of hops, a week later I pull the hop bag and squeeze the delicious juices out of it, then I crash for 2 days and bottle. Amazing results and zero sediment in the bottle. If I kegged I could probably get away with primary only, but bottling, no way no how.

Agree with bottle bomber, his is the ideal method.

Only if I'm making a porter or something real dark ill just do primary.

Ok I got all the ingredients yesterday to do an extract version of this... The only things I've changed are that I'm using all DME and I'm doing a late extract add... I'll let y'all know how it turns out!

Was wondering how long you you preboil the grains in the all extract version. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

20 to 30 minutes at 160 degrees. But you don't have to be exact when steeping grains.
