Ed, I saw you noted you dry home with those stainless herb balls in the keg. Have you ever had an issue with those mesh balls not concealing the hops particles and it clogging your diptube?
When describing a decent beer I like to say "Happy, but not quite hilarious."

brewed this one up on 3/25, bottled 4/15, cracked one open tonight and....look out...mighty tasty brew. love the color, and the centennial hops shine (my favorite the bell's two hearted ale). nice work edwort.
happypanties...i've recently been dryhopping in the primary also (but only after 7 to 10 days of fermentation), THEN racking to the secondary. was just trying to avoid the mess of a bunch of hop trub in the bottling bucket. i haven't noticed much difference, but i'm pretty new at this so my opinion probably isn't worth squat....

Even with dry-hopping in the primary, it turned out really good for me! It tasted more like a pale ale, not quite an IPA, but it was damn good!

I'm brewing another batch tomorrow, and I'll try dry hopping in the secondary for comparison.

i brewed this around two months ago and was wondering if the bitterness subsides with time? it smells great but you can't taste much of the hops i am assuming the bitterness might be masking it. or if not which hop addition to up to increase flavor. ( i followed the recipe as is except i used dark munich cuz i didn't know any better)any thoughts?

Hey there,

I was at the brew store the other day and I picked up Chinook hops thinking they were Centenniel. Do you think it would be fine if I dry hopped with the Chinook instead?

Brewed this except all Warrior on Saturday as my first All Grain batch. Very excited to see how it turns out. Going to leave it in the primary for 7, then rack to secondary for 2 weeks on another oz of Warrior. Thanks for the recipe. I changed the hops to all Warrior due to a lack of Centennial at my shop. I'm anxious to see how this one turns out.

I used the same grain bill, but am going to dry hop with amarillo instead of centennial.
