Great so to win a competition in this style you have to spend $75 on hops for a 5 gal. batch. That's encouraging. But I do have a question, you noted that one should ferment for ten days and then go to secondary just when yeast starts to drop. Could you clarify this? Also, how long did you secondary for and how long were the hops there for?

its more like 40$ in hops if you were to buy at retail price. when i read "when the yeast drops" makes me think that hes waiting for active fermentation to stop, the term yeast drops tho would could also be used if you were to cold crash your beer befor bottling. i brewed one real similar to this, lots of citra and simcoe, messed up my sparge water, by not having enough, so i only ended up with 4.5 gal to keg. and i also used alot of honey and honey malt. super effin good.

Yes, I mean when active fermentation begins to slow down and the yeast starts to settle out. Secondary 5-7 days on the dry hops. I'm starting to like my beers more when the dry hops have a shorter contact time with the beer.
