I usually add the Irish moss to my recipes at around 30 minutes but 15 minutes is fine too. After the cascade at the end of the boil would be too late to add it. The whole bittering/aroma thing only applies to hops. The Irish moss will help clear your beer up but really won't contribute much to flavor or aroma.

Thanks all the input was very helpful, I'm going to attempt it today, any suggestions on aging in secondary before bottling? Couple weeks?

Yeah. I'd go about a week in the primary (check your readings to make sure it's done fermenting!!!) and then two weeks in the secondary.

FWIW Lagunitas only dry hops in secondary for 4 days then cold crashes at 30 for a few days

A few more days. Three weeks.

Have you tried any samples? How does it taste?

0 minute means you add the hops once you shut off the heat and start cooling.

Ok, as long as its fine since I transferred to secondary. No rush. Ya I tried it, wasn't to bad. I guess not what I expected..

And yea I was guessing that's what Zero minutes was but I didn't want to add it after the moss
