    So from what I am reading, dry hopping for 5 day would get most if not all the aroma and flovor
    I could get from the hops? I am fermenting an American Pale ale and going to dry hop with 2oz
    of amarill...

    So if I ferment in the primary for 7 days, transfer the beer to the secondary, let it sit in
    the secondary for 2 weeks, and then dry hop the beer will it make any difference to how the
    beer turns out?...

    OK. I am going to dry hop for the first time and have some questions.When I transfer the
    secondary, do I wait or can I wait a week or two to put the hops in the beer after transfering
    to the secondary...

    So it sounds like it would be fine if I don't use it until Sunday. Thanks for all the quick
    responses. I am still hopeful that I can brew tonight as planned.

    I have made up a yeast starter that is currently on the stir plate. I was planning on brewing
    tonight but may not be able to due to a schedule change. If I put the yeast starter in the frig
    for a few ...

    Yes, you do reach a limit. Over 60 minutes you do not get much additional bitterness; point of
    diminishing returns.A lot of times 90 minute boils is to drive off DMS. Required mostly for
    pilsner malts...

    So is there a point when you max out on the bitterness you can get from the hops?

    I am going to make the Sierra Nevada pale ale clone that was in the December 2012 issue of BYO
    magazine and it calls for a 90 minute boil adding the first hops at the beginning of the boil.
    What does ...

    JusticeAle and dinertime - either of you guys finish this build? I have the door off right now,
    ready to do this, and just realized the same problem with the screws. I started going around
    the outside...

    Looking at my Frig, the only way you might fit a 10lb tank is if you only put one keg in the
    frig. If all you have is a 10lb tank, just drill a hole in the frig and put it on the outside.
