Default Really Basic Galaxy Themed IPA

Recipe Type: Extract
Yeast: US-05
Yeast Starter: No
Batch Size (Gallons): 5
Original Gravity: 1.061
Final Gravity: 1.010
IBU: 77
Boiling Time (Minutes): 60
Color: Mmmm
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 12 @ 64-65F
Additional Fermentation: Dry Hop 3 Days
Tasting Notes: LOL amazing.

This was a basic experiment I did to really try out what Galaxy hops have to offer.

7 lbs. DME Golden Light
1 lbs. Crystal 40L

60 Mins - 1 oz. Warrior pellets
15 Mins - 1 oz. Galaxy pellets
5 Mins - 1 oz. Galaxy pellets
0 Mins - 1 oz. Galaxy pellets
Dry Hop - 3 oz Galaxy hops

Super simple recipe. Steeped Crystal for 30 mins at 155F. This tastes so yummy. I really like galaxy hops and they have a cool name . I suggest any of you guys new to brewing who like bitter beers and want to get away from the classic hops, give this a try!

Just did a smash that is similar with only galaxy and it is out of bounds! About 77 IBUs, smooth with great color!

You substituted the warrior with more galaxy? How was that? What would be the benefit of using warrior?

New brewer here. Dry Hop 3 Days means adding the hops with 3 days left, correct?

I did all galaxy, the warrior would just make it slightly more bitter with a little more hop bite. The all galaxy is a super aroma and has a big grapefruit and passion fruit taste.

I only have experience with dry hopping when transferring to a secondary. When adding dry hops to the primary, is it safe to just open it up and drop them in, or is there a better way to do it?

Yes it's fine I just add them straight to the primary. The only solid feedback I have is from a local big brewer who always reminds me to never dry hop longer than seven days, otherwise you get that grassy off taste from the hops sitting in there too long.
I never rack to a secondary. It's all opinion based. To me it's more risk than reward. All my beers come out clear and you just need to be more patient when bottling.

I'm going to be give this a shot this weekend. I plan on following JoeyChestnutFan's recipe pretty much exactly, but I was going to leave it in the primary for 14 days and dry hop the last 5 days.

If I were to add irish moss, would that be done at the 15 minute hop addition?
