Did you use aroma hops or a dual aroma and bittering hop? It might have been the hops, but dry hopping, usually adds no bitterness. The good thing though if the taste came from the dry hopping it will dissipate with time.

3-4 weeks.
Yeah I know, you aren't the first to say its better. I dreamt this up during March Madness. The Miller Lite commercials were driving me crazy about the triple hopping and more taste, and man up bull$hit. Not too mention, I borrowed the base recipe from Charlie Papazian. Subbed the hops and yeast to suit my needs.

Hmmm this seems like very important info and a really great reason to get some AE.

I used only cascade...that is why it's weird. It was just wayyy to strong for the beer but I don't know if the hops have freezer burn or what because it tasted funny.

How old is it now? Is it kegged? AE often has a dry patched taste when young, maybe that's what you are tasting.

The better was only kegged for a little bit and then drank right away. Hops only sat in the keg for a week. Don't think that would dissipate with time...think it would get worse the longer the dry hops were in there. What do I know tho.

I was assuming you dry hopped in the secondary. I never dry hop in the keg. I think most people use a secondary. Yeah, it would be more hoppy but in aroma, not bitterness unless you were drinking hop lupilin sediment.

I made my first batch of this recipe without any dry hopping. It's been in the keg for about a week. I must say I think it was better dry hopped. I am now considering dry hopping in the keg with whole hops in a muslim bag.

Do yourself one better. Make a Randall. Basically a water filter without the filter. You replace the filter with hops.

The quarts or gallons are as stated. The mash volume is water plus grain. So this is the space required. I typically sparge with twice the dough in amount. So about 15 quarts.
