    I usually dry hop 5 gallons with 2 ounces of pellets for 3 days. There doesn't seem to be a whole lot to gain going any longer than that. A friend gave me 2 ounces of whole leaf to try. Is the extraction time on whole leaf the same as pellets or a bit longer?

    It's not from a conical. I carefully harvest out of the bottom of by brewing bucket. What would be your suggested process be for building a 'vitality starter' out of the 125 ml of (very clean and dense) yeast I have harvested?
