I brewed up a citra pale ale about 6 weeks ago that has been kegged and is waiting patiently to be consumed next weekend. I'm thinking it would be good to hit it with some dry hops but I've been out of the game too long and I can't remember how much to use... I'm going to be using whole-leaf hops in a hop-sack, I'm just going to throw them straight into the keg... I was thinking 2-3 oz should be good for 5 gallons? Any thoughts?
