Default Forgot to add a Whirlfloc. When should I put finings in?

Yeah, 4-7 days before racking and bottling. But I'll be dry hopping this batch. Does that matter?

In other words, should I just add the fining agent a week before bottling (i.e., along with my dry hop charge), or should I add it in, wait a week, and then dry hop?

Or does it just not matter?


Wes hl, Beowa!

Primary: Little Lion IPA v2
Secondary: Empty
Bottled: Little Lion IPA (v2), Proud Kitty Pale Ale, and one last bottle of the weird brown ale that wanted to be an Oud Bruin when it grew up.
On deck: Cascadia, a CDA, or a stout.

Unless you really want to obsess over having a clear beer, which a large amount of hops might not allow anyway, don't worry about it.
When I forget, I say "oops", and move on.
