okay thanks for the replies. i've covered it in cling film to try and keep the air out as much as possible, hopefully it'll do the trick. the transfer and dry hop was done on tuesday, so i think i'll bottle it tomorrow, however i have read about the cooler it is the longer you can dry hop and i was thinking of cold crashing, hoping it would clear my beer a little better. if i do that, it would be tomorrow and then i'd bottle on tuesday, but im unsure whether it'd benefit from that. im brewing a light ipa.
