If your not getting enough dry hop character from dry hopping in the primary you are not waiting long enough to dry hop. The vigour of the fermentation drives off the hop aromatics and if a bunch of...

I've found that hop bags are unnessesary and counterproductive for dry hopping. If you have the ability to cold crash, just freeball those hops in the carboy. They will drop out of solution when you...
