I recently purchased the True Brew Oaked Imperial Stout kit from my LHS. The owner told me it was his favorite kit by TB so I went with it. As I was picking his brain about it I got a wild hair to dry hop it to add a little bit of a hoppy after taste to the malty/oaky/chocolatey fore taste - so I decided on an ounce of Fuggle Hops. The kit says to add the oak chips after about three days of fermentation, my question is: when should I add the hops?
And how long should I let the hops sit in the carboy in order to acheive enough of a hoppy flavor for it to be noticed?
Thanks in advance!
