Im thinking about dry hopping my holiday ale. Personally Im a hop head, but im thinkin that the hop aroma will overpower the cinammon, clove, and ginger. What do you all think? I have some hallertaur hops that i was thinkin about adding.

The trick is to not use too much. Since this is for the holidays try 1/2 oz. for a week in the clearing tank. If you think it can handle more after the first round, you have time for another.

Chinook might be a better choice: Mild to medium-heavy, spicy, piney, and grapefruity.
Remember one unassailable statistic, as explained by the late, great George Carlin: "Just think of how stupid the average person is, and then realize half of them are even stupider!"
