When doing a beer that requires multiple dry hopping, I think it is best to leave the old hops in. Too many things, in my mind, can go wrong pulling things out of your beer and putting thing back in. YMMV.
I agree with that. A friend of mine who is getting into brewing and really fanatical at this point was asking, how do I remove the hop sack from my keg after 5 days. I told him I didn't know cause I had never done it! Well I suppose that there might be a better way, but this has always been fine for me.

Made this back in march following all the original ingredients and instructions.... i kegged 2 gallon and bottled the rest. Og was 1.061 and fg was 1.010.. i used safale 04. Color hop character and feel from kegged beer was on, but yeast strain seemed off. Zombie dust had a more slightly different more english taste to me. The bottled beer after three weeks is closer but just a bit off still. Still a great beer and one of my favorite to date. im going to tweek a bit and try with safale 05 since i have already.

Is that one of those new DFH/SN IPA glasses?

Sure is, i'm not sold on them yet....
Makes the beer slightly more carbonated, but can't tell if thats good or bad yet... i still enjoy a nice pint glass.

Just pitched on 11 gallons of Zombie Dust. Long day as I was using some new equipment and had issues...go figure! In the end, all turned out pretty well. Overshot my numbers a little, with my PBG being +6 and my SG being +5. First time I have done a 60 minute boil (usually do 90's) so the day went a little quicker, though I did run into some issues I had to contend with, mostly self inflicted. I used mostly leaf hops in the boil and man it smelled awesome!! Going to use a keg hopper for the dry hop phase...another new toy. I am going to do one keg with Citra and the other with Mosaic. Should be some tasty brew! May post a few pix later. Cheers!

Just brewed 5 gallons of this yesterday Mashed a couple degrees low, still managed OG of 1.074. I went with S-04, and man is it fermenting away! Can't wait to try it!

Just kegged mine...this is easily the best beer I've ever brewed. I've been working on the water treatment aspect of my hoppy beers, and this one is as close to perfect as I've ever been.

Prost for honing this one in.

I kegged mine last night and tasted it.... it is probably the best beer I have ever made as well. I'll take a picture on Tuesday when it is fully carbonated.

Lets see that pic! I'm transferring my tomorrow for dry hopping, curious to see how others have turned out!

Just brewed this yesterday using white labs 002. Also added an extra 1.25oz of citra at wirlpool around 170 degrees. Excited to see how it turns out.
