I remember taking a taste of the first beer I ever heavily dry hopped out of the bottling bucket and thinking 'OMG what the hell have I just done'

Incredibly green and vegetative

3 weeks later it was pure tropical, citrus and pine.

3 weeks after kegged mine is starting to loose its hop presence. I wonder if someone has ever threw more hops in halfway through the keg to reenergize it

keezerj: Yep, been there, done that. It works, just be careful of O2. Last thing you want is to oxidize! That is another reason I like to keg, I can add hops or other things to change the beer over time. One time I had a vanilla porter that had very little vanilla flavor, so I puts some beans in vodka, let them soak for a while, and then popped it into the keg. Greatly improved the beer. Same thing with hops...if I have a plain tasting beer and want to add a little more hoppy goodness, in goes a sack of hops and it improves the beer almost immediately. Just watch the oxygen...if you can, hit it hard with CO2 before, and after closing the keg. Cheers!

Oh, and drink faster. Grin!

I know this is an old thread...what is the reason for the 90 minute boil?

Silly question probably but is there much noticeable difference in flavour and aroma by adding a second lot of dry hopping rather than just adding the lot in one hit when fermentation is complete?

I guess the short answer is Yes. The addition of the total 3/4 oz last dry hop addition does seem like why? But recipes are designed as such for a reason and if Vinni says to do it, then do it. After all he is the creator and this beer is supposed to be the bomb. I just kegged mine Tuesday, so another half a week or so, I'll be able to see.
I also listened to a Jamil podcast regarding hop additions and I remember him saying that in some cases one pellet more or one pellet less can make a difference, that seems extreme, but they know more than I.

Brewed this with 8oz Caramel 30 since I didn't have crystal 45. I got all the grain and hops for free from Iron Hill Brewery (wonderful perks of the job) and brew day went well. My second all grain batch and first one done alone.

Mashed with 6.3g and sparged with close to that to yield about 7 gallons preboil. Ended with around 6 gallons to ferment and I hit 75% efficiency with an OG of 1.068. Added a bit more corn sugar to the boil, about an oz or two. Thanks for the recipe!
