I would just leave it be. I've left dry hops in carboys for over a month and have never tasted anything grassy. I think it's an urban legend.

I've got one bottle of Pliney bottled on 1/29 I'd probably trade for Heady Topper. I've never shipped beer before, would it make more sense to try to get more bottles for shipping cost reasons?

I'm gonna dry hop mine in a week but I'm worried it might lose too much hop aroma by the competition. I think I might brew another one just in case.
