Probably 3 1/2 - 4 gal. left in the keg of the slightly skunky batch. I dry-hopped it in the
keg with 2 oz. of whole leaf Cascade at room temp for a couple of days. Then chilled it back
down. That wor...

It's not bad enough for me to add hops. It's just a slight taste. Most people have liked the

or lingering ...

Alright, now you have done it! I am going to try dry hopping my Stone Ruination clone when it

. Fill with 2oz of leaf hops (i used Citra), zip tie the bag close, drop in, and carb. I lef
