So I made a wheat ipa two weeks ago and it is still in the primary. I still need to dry hop and this is where the problem comes in. I leave tomorrow and won't return home until April 1. What should I do?

I guess what i would do would be to transfer into secondary and resume your dry hop schedule when you get back in april

You don't need to dry hop right away. rack the beer into a carboy or keg, and handle the hopping when you get home. If going carboy to bottle, make sure you add some fresh yeast before bottling.
Got a Question? Always happy to help. Just shoot me a message.
