I'm doing my first brew where I have to dry hop. A Pliny the Elder clone. When I transfer to the secondary how long should I dry hop for? The hop additions call for 12--4 days left and 5days left to go in dry hop. How do I follow this schedule?

After full fermentation (at least two weeks), trasfer to secondary and dry hop for 7-10 days. Rule of thumb is never longer than 2 weeks dry hop or grass flavors may result.
Keg #1: Brown Bomber Bourbon/Oak Vanilla Porter
Keg #2: The Bollocks ESB
Keg #3 Lawnmower APA
Fermenter: Empty
Bottled: Mjolnir Mead, Lazy Daze Hefe.
