Default Dryhopping with a LOT of hops

Hey All,

I am brewing next week and the recipe calls for 6oz or so to dry hop.
I am assuming that will soak up a lot of wort. And be a mess.

I am guessing I should use a hop bag (or two).

Should I wring out the hops after I am done dry hopping? Or is that bad like squeezing steeped grains?

I was going to pm you back but that is what I struggled with on my Pliny clone. I think the key is time,cools crass and transfer trouble another vessel, cold crash again and then use gelatin

What do you mean by "cools crass" and by "transfer the trouble"
Thanks!

I think he meant "cold crash" & "transfer to another vessel".

Squeeze them it won't hurt anything as long as you're sanitary, and I'd use a secondary for the dry hopping, most likely a bucket so I could get that 6oz of hops out.

Yeah, I heard that he drinks.

If you're going to hang around here, I hope you learn to speak druck!

6 ounces of dryhopping will soak up a lot of beer. But, the remaining beer will be awesome, so try to not think of it as a loss, but as a gain of even more wonderful beer.

Now that I look back that totally makes sense.

At first I was like... Geeesh... I really thought I was learning all the lingo. But I have no idea what "cooling the crass" or "transfering the trouble" is.

I was like...welp.... back to square one. What a relief.

Is it wrong to be thinking of Michael Scott's favorite quote here?

An idea for you-- do 2 oz at a time, for five days, and then yank them and add the next two, and then yank those and add the last two, and tehn after 5 days bottle.

Sometimes too much at once gives the grassy flavor.

Well, hopefully you understand what "druck" is, too, and possibly picnip taps can come later.
