Could someone please tell me the pros and cons of dryhopping in the primary fermenter after fermentation has taken place? I don't want to use a secondary but I want to add them hops. -Thanks

You can leave your beer in the primary to clear(that what you would secoundary for)and add your hops, i have read alot of threads that say "no need for secondary fermintation, allow more time in primary, in short wait for fermentation to stop,then make hop addition
3 weeks primary 3 weeks bottle(or more, beer will taste better with age)
