Yeah I kinda figured. I've just been so busy lately. I wanted to brew something tasty for a upcoming function. Oh well, I'll still brew it it and save it for myself. That sounds like a way cooler plan anyway.

When you dry hop this in the keg, do you hit it with a little gas just to set a layer on top, or do you just transfer and seal it up?

Thanks. I brewed this last Sunday, so I'm approaching the 10 day mark. Plan to transfer it to the keg this weekend.

I always purge a keg after opening the lid to put in hops or take out the hop bag.

Just took a hyrdrometer reading at it's right at the 1.016 and tastes pretty darn good (green but good). Can't wait to get a taste of this after dry hopping. Great recipe, thanks!

Has anybody else noticed that this is really bitter? It's been in the bottle for 4 weeks and is still overpoweringly bitter. Anybody have any advice on this?

Yep, it's about 8 weeks before I drink a batch of a beer these days and the patience is worth it.

You could rush things into 4 weeks, but you would have green beer IMHO.
Ed,
What is your temp and psi during that one week on the gas?

Thanks!

Brewed this yesterday. I fly sparged for the first time and I have to say I like it.
The mash went a little longer than 90 minutes and the mash temps were a little low for the first 30 minutes or so.
OG into the boiler was 1.068 and 1.076 going in the fermenter. I am not sure what to attribute the higher OG to but it was crazy high eff. according to Beersmith.
I was thinking of adding an ounce of Columbus to the ounce of Centennial for dry hopping. Anyone dry hopped with that combination before?
Thanks.

I made this and dry hopped with only Columbus. Pretty awesome. The combo of Columbus and Centennial should work fine.

How do you remove the ball after dry-hopping?
