My LHBS guy told me dry hopping just imparts the hoppy nose, is that true in your opinion?

I just did my first brew a BB hopnogg and it tastes good, but i do miss that hoppy nose which i'm sure i can get from dry hopping. will likely try that next time around, so just put the hops in the secondary for a week in a tea bag is my understanding. Do the pellets work okay or must I get hops in their original form?

Different beers different times.

Most APA IPA I dry hop in the keg till it kicks, other times its for 2wks +/- in the carboy before getting kegged. Now with my Houblon clone its 3wks while lagering before getting kegged and/or bottled.

Looks like most are at about a week to 2 weeks...

There was a mention of temperature differential, has anyone tried microwaving the hops before they go in the carboy?

7-10 days depending on the beer and I do it warm 70ish deg with no vegetative flavors. Sometimes several additions during that time and swirl the fermenter a little.

If not using some type of bag, gentle swirling is a must every now and then. Really helps them settle out, pellets that is.
