I think you could dry hop with anything...but Centennial is my favorite dry hop.

What do you think would be a good amount for a 5 gallon batch?

I'd do a one ounce total. In fact...since the hops are actually centennial and cascade, a half ounce of each would be a nice compliment.

Does this brew need a blow off tube or will my 3 piece be ok?

A three-piece bubbler is fine. At less than 1.045, you won't have any problems.

Now...if you pitch the wort on top of an entire yeast cake from a previous batch...no guarantees...

I'll be transferring this to the secondary tomorrow. I used the Cali Ale yeast for it because I have an amber that will get the same yeast. I will advise.

All I can say is yum! I dry hopped with 1/2 oz of Centennial and 1/4 oz of Cascade (what I had left over) for only two days, but it did exactly what I wanted. A slighty sweet hoppy aroma, and a nice floral, citrusy after taste. Took my first swig today and I am a big fan. Should be totaly carbed in a few more days, perfect timing for my wedding this weekend! YEAY! This will go fast. Thanks BierMuncher.

This sounds great! I just picked up some supplies today to make the extract version of this beer. I'm looking forward to the end product in a few weeks!

Nice to hear. Fire up that grill and keep a cold pint nearby.
