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.
