Are you dry hopping on the secondary?

Hey I was hoping you would post the tasting notes. I'm rebrewing it soon, I've wanted to ever since the original batch and never got around to it. So I'd like to read the notes to see if there's any good info that might help me.

Also to the last poster yes. I do dry hop in secondary. For most beers I like to only primary in a carboy for a month before bottling. But for this beer I primary in a bucket for better ester production, so I then rack to secondary for dry hopping.

Hmm, I'm curious - can you explain what you mean by this? What about a bucket promotes esters vs. a carboy?

The lower pressure environment allows for more ester and phenol production. I was listening to an episode of the Jamil show where he said that at the Sierra Nevada Brewery they ferment their lagers under a couple psi of pressure so that they can ferment warmer and more quickly, but keep a very clean fermentation profile. So it stands to reason that a very loosely covered bucket will have less pressure than a glass Carboy with ab airlock.

Looks tasty. Hope you don't mind some questions

If I am doing brew in a bag, should I do something different?
Will it be OK to let this sit in primary for 2 weeks? I'll be leaving on vacation 7 days after making this.

I've only done BIAB a couple times and didn't like my results so as far as that goes I can't offer any really sound advice. You can definitely leave it in primary longer it won't hurt a bit. I only secondary this one for the dry hopping. Most of my beers are primary only for a month.

Homebrewtastic- looks delicious.

What do you think about doing this in a partial mash?

Made this recipe in April and bottle it about 3 weeks ago. It is simply fantastic.
I wasn't much of an IPA person until recently, but I'm coming around. I love the balance between the maltiness and the hops. Will be doing it again very soon.
Thanks for the great recipe.
