throw them in 5x what you normally would. I brewed a fresh hop ipa at the beginning of September and it tastes great!

I'm doing Vinnie's Wet Hop Ale and he says to dry hop with wet hops.

Really? I never thought about that before. I guess they would have "stuff" on them, but I never boil dryhops.

Me either but this will be my first wet dry hop. That sounds strange...

I am reviving this thread so as not to start a new one. I have a Yooper's House Ale variation brewed yesterday with yeast from a one gallon ale. It is fermenting like crazy. I just picked a bunch of Casade and Centennial hops. If I use the wet hops to dry hop, will the Co2 from the active fermentation drive off the aromas? If I choose to wait a few days, should I dry the hops to avoid mildew? Should I throw them in now and the pick more next week and add them too?
