Quick question by a beginner, does 1.00 oz Simcoe @ DH 7 days mean to dry hop for 7 days or add the dry hops on day 7? If the latter, then does this mean leave them in there for the duration of fermentation?

Put them in for 7 days. I do mine in secondary. After that you're ready to keg or bottle.

For most APAs/IPAs I will typically ferment for 3-4 weeks and dry hop in the primary for the last week.

Looks great. Think ill give it a shot tomorrow. Might add more to the flameout addition and a short hopstand for a little hop boost. Thanks for sharing!

By hop stand do you mean letting the wort sit for a bit before cooling/transferring?

Just did my first batch today (NB Irish red extract 5 gal) and was bubbling in carboy after only 2 hrs :0) Thanks Wyeast yeast nutrient!!!

I think I will try this recipe next and do it BIAB. Probably just need to add an extra pound or two of base to make sure I hit my numbers.

Exactly. I just finished brewing this and added simcoe and chinook at flameout, cooled to ~170, let it steep for about 45 minutes, then cooled to pitching temp. I hit 70% efficiency so it should be about 5% ABV. I'll post results in a few weeks!

Looking forward to your results!

So what was the complete hop schedule? I am brewing this again and will also up the late addition hops. I also am going to use Wyeast 1450.
