Why do you need to add anything?

Rack into 1-gallon jugs and dry hop with 5 different hops. It can give 5 very different beers.

When your beer is fully fermented and has been sitting in your fermenter for 3 weeks, rack it into 5 different gallon jugs and add different things. Use your imagination, lime and grapefruit, crystal hops and orange peel, what ever you feel like!!! Let it set for a week or two and bottle it and then enjoy how unique each beer will be from the same batch.....IMHO

I am thinking about the oranges thing. Maybe clementines. I really like these hops and did alot of late addition so I don't think dry hopping unless I use citra or cascade. Thanks for the responses. I'm only about a week and a half in. I'll post some pics later of what Ive got
