9.9# John Bull light extract syrup
.5# toasted malted barley (8 min)
1.5oz Mt.Hood (boiling)5.2AA
.5oz Hallertaur (flavor)4.4AA
1 oz Strisselpart (flavor)2.6AA
Oktoberfest yeast with small starter
2 Weeks today, starting gravity 1.032-1.034
I'm expecting this brew to have the "twang" and all though the recipe doesnt call for dry hopping, I wanted to dry hop with .5 oz Mt Hood once I rack to secondary in order to add flavor and counterbalance the sweetness. Can I mask this extract flavor with the hops by dry hopping? Also, it doesnt worry me that this isnt a traditional practice for the brew style.
