Would you all suggest dry hopping after fermentation in the fermenter or in the brite tank?

I keep it simple and dry hop in primary.
It is important to do it after fermentation is over, primary or secondary is personal choice.. IMO.
We are only 10,000 years into beer... there are thousands of years left to go!
Things are bound to change!!

I prefer to dry hop in a "bright" tank. Many commercial brewers will separate the beer from the yeast before dry hoping, I think sierra nevada dry hops in the fermenter. I have a separate keg that I add the hops to in a Stainless mesh bag, then purge with CO2 before racking from the fermenter into it. I let it sit for 3-4 days before transferring into serving kegs.

I think every one has their own method for dry hoping, but this is mine.
