Finally tapped my keg today, a really good recipe. Going to need to be careful with this keg.

Brewed this on 7/12, bottled on 8/14. OG was 1.084 and FG was 1.014. I used 3.4oz of corn sugar. When I pour this, I get no head, and the beer is very thick. Is that how it's suppose to be? It tastes clean, but its very thick even though I mashed at 151-152*F and used 1lb of corn sugar at start of boil. Needs more time in bottle?

Bigger beers will need more time to fully condition in the bottle. An IIPA is certainly a "fuller" tasting beer, but should not really be "thicker". Once the beer gets it's proper effervescence, that should lighten the profile substantially.

I have a Pliny clone on dry hops. I used hop extract, just like Vinnie. Tastes pretty awesome so far.

Okay... this is growing on me! 5 weeks in the bottle it is starting to get amazing. I'm just not used to such a rich beer I guess, never made a homebrew over 6%. I still have 50 bottles of this, I think I need to RDWHAB

I snuck a taste of this after 3 weeks in primary and WOW this is good stuff! Tastes like fruit loops. Yum.

This is going to secondary on Friday. What is the best way to dry hop? In a bag? Straight in the carboy? In a keg?

I dry hopped in a muslim bag for 10 days. I sure had a hard time pulling 4.5oz of expanded hops out of a better bottle neck This beer is F'ing amazing. I would suggest a bag for SURE.
