Tasting the sample, doesn't actually taste too sweet surprisingly..But a pretty strong bitter aftertaste (which im sure will fade over time).. I'm stumped now so I'm getting ready to rack this to secondary tomorrow and start the dry hopping..
Im going to be bottling this later so I'm worried about all that sugar left behind making the bottles explode.

Did you try to rouse the yeast by shaking/oxygenating? I agree with you that at gravity 1.030 it could become a CO2 bomb in the bottle.

Did you double check your hydrometer in plain water? Sometimes those papers slip, giving an inaccurate reading. Check the hydrometer in water, just to make sure your reading is really so high.

Yeah. I warmed it up to about 70 and shook it a little bit before i repitched the new yeast. Also shook it up some yesterday. Had no luck. Its extract so I just cant figure out what would make it stick

Yooper, I already checked the hydrometer a few days ago.plain water @ 60F: 1.000. Got nothing but to dry hop and bottle.Probably keep an eye as it bottle conditions if the caps start to budge.
However, if the yeast aint acting on the sugar now, why would they act once bottled.

Shake/swirl the crap out of it. I had to do just that (vigorous sloshing) since an earlier light shaking didn't get the yeast going.

Hi, I'm getting ready to dry hop an extract batch of this. I have a hop bag. How do folks sterilize the bag? Should I just boil it prior to use? What about the hops? Do I need to do anything to them to avoid contamination or do I just put them in the bag and place them in the carboy?

Thanks. I can't wait to try this beer.
Rob

I don't usually use bags, (they are hard to get IN the carboy, but much harder to get out!) but if you do simply sanitizing them or boiling them is fine. No need to do anything to the hops at all.

Just took my first FG sample. Hit 1.020 so I'm pretty sure it's done. Tasted a small sample and had a very distinct "coffee" taste. Is this normal?

See if you can get it down more from 1.020, unless your OG was high. DFH 60 always has a certain roasty toasty quality to it that no one else seems to relate to, maybe this is what you're talking about? It's still hoppy with citrus but it has something unique, different than all other IPA's.
