So I brewed a Arrogant Bastard Clone, the second version Jamil did on Can you brew it. I hit Mash temp throughout and OG as well as FG right on the money. I added the hop additions throughout (75min, 60 min, 45 min, and flame out, all 1.2 oz of chinook). Anyways, the flavor while good, the hop aroma and flavor is not quite there while doing a side by side with AB.
So, my question, I have only .25 oz chinook but I have east kent goldings, col,umbus, ahntanum, and warrior in my freezer and I was wondering if anyone suggested dry hopping for a few days to a week? '
Anyways, any suggestions would be welcome. Thanks!

I can't smell you beer from here In other words, it's your call, you're the master brewer on this. You could also peruse some of the arrogant bastard threads on this forum to see if anyone has specifics pertaining to dry hopping, there are some related threads down there VVVVVV
Newer, better, more streamlined sig as per the forum police.

Yeah, it's up to you. But if you do, please use the chinook. Bastard with anything else, won't be a bastard.
