I don't think your method of dry hopping will much effect the clarity of your beer as long as the hops are strained out one way of another before bottling.

Did you use irish moss at the end of boil? Or do you plan on cold crashing? (Sorry if you posted this info already, it's been quite a while). It seems like these two things will have the biggest impact on clarity, along with using a secondary (which I assume you'll be doing with dry hopping and all).

I used a clarity tab, and I haven't cold crashed.

I transfered to the secondary yesterday. I ended up not using any bags for dry hopping. It's currently sitting at 72*.

Bottling Day!!! I just bottled my Blind Pig IPA. I got 24 - 22oz. bottles filled. I had some beer left over to fill only half a 22oz. so I ended up just tossing it. I need to pick up some 12oz. bottles.

Forgot to add my FG was 1.014. So Stoked!

I had a feeling I was going to get some heat for that comment . My wife and I did taste it, but since all I had was the 22oz. bottles I decided to just toss the rest. It wasn't even half a 22oz.

After a little over a week of bottle conditioning I couldn't resist. Nice head and it held throughout drinking. Not as bitter as some IPAs, but still has that IPA bitterness. I'm going to give it another week and then throw in the fridge for another couple days.

Nice head, man! Looks a bit cloudy. I'm worried I might get that with my Two Hearted clone I just transfered to secondary yesterday; it was the last batch before I started using whirlfloc. I'm thinking of using gelatin when bottling.

I like the label, I used the same one to take some pictures of my Gingerbread Brown. Did you use milk to adhere it to the bottle?
