My plan was to bottle in about 3 or 4 days. I guess we'll see

I took this 17 days after brew day when I carried the carboy to the fridge to cold crash, so
the dry hops settled out. The little white spots were sort of grouped before the dry hop. Like
I said, mayb...

I may just be paranoid, but I thought I spotted the start of an infection in my latest IPA. I
dry sprinkled US-05. The krausen fell but I still had some weird bubbles and yeast rafts that

Hoppy flavors/aromas fade over time. Did you dry hop with pellets? Did you cold crash your
secondary? Cold crashing will cause the dry hop particles to settle out with the trub. I do
this, then I bott...

Here's a similar thread from a few days ago. Looks like everyone pretty much agrees that the
warmer the temp, the better hop oil extraction occurs, which leads to better aroma (which is
what you want ...

Was it an extract or all-grain recipe? If extract, then you probably just didn't top up with
enough water in your primary, and assuming you used all of the extract, your worth should have
had a higher...

Leave it alone. I generally aim for 5.5 gallons going into primary from my kettle, this way it
accounts for volume loss with trub/hop particles. In the case of extract brewing, when you
transfer from ...

You will definitely get a better extraction rate at warmer temperatures. I usually dry hop at
around 68 degrees for 4-5 days, then I cold crash for an additional 2-3 days to get the hops
and any remai...
