    Dry hopping temperature

    What do people think of the idea that the temperature you dry hop at can impart different flavour characteristics to the beer? Generally my standard dry hop regime is to finish fermentation then cool the beer from around 20C/68F down to 14C/57F and add hops. Leave for 3 days and then crash cool...

    Dry Hops - To swirl or not to swirl, that is the question

    I recently dry hopped my latest batch with 100g of dry hops. The pellets have now expanded and are floating on the top. Should I try to swirl them back into solution, or given that they are wet I can assume the oils will get into the rest of the beer?

    Yeast harvesting/washing

    Always such good advice on here... I use a conical for fermentation that I dry hop in. Can I still harvest the yeast to use again? Will it matter if there are some (I use a hop bag) hop bits in it? Thanks for your input in advance!

    Dry Hopping enough?

    I’ve made a couple neipa’s lately with varying degree of success. But the one thing that seems to be eluding me is getting a strong fruity, juicy, flavour from the dry hopping. I’ve used mosaic, simcoe, citra, azacca (?) and up to 12 oz. in a 5 gallon batch. Also used imperial dry hop yeast and...

    Conditioning in keg vs the fermentor

    Hi folks! Scroll to the bottom for the actual question. I'm planning on conditioning my extract high ABV stout. I believe i will gett 1000 different answers, but what's the basics? The brew has already been fermenting for 9 days to kind of the FG i was counting for. ABV 9.06%. It have been...

    Dry Hop while carbing

    Anyone have any experience dry hopping in keg while carbonating? Any feedback? I read somewhere this guy was going to try it dry hopping at 60 degrees while carbonating. He said he thought (based on some research) that it would keep the hops brighter. I usually dry hop first layer when SG gets...

    Peach IPA- dry hopping with fruit

    Hi-beginner brewer. I have brewed a few times using kits with success and will be using another kit to brew an ipa. The recipe calls for dry hopping but I also plan on adding peaches to a secondary. My mind is made up, I’m adding peaches and you can’t stop me. I know you don’t NEED a secondary...

    Low O2 keg transfer issue and help with hop pickup

    I was attempting to do a low oxygen transfer from carboy to keg using my ss racking cane and liquid in through the dip tube. I was even using a BIAB around the cane to avoid excess hop material in the keg when about half way through the transfer, liquid stopped. Tried moving the cane, bag, post...

    When & how to hop?

    I’m new to brewing and have just finished my first batch of Original Bitter, which turned out a treat! Next up is a Newcy Brown Ale, using liquid extract again. I want to try hopping this time and have some fuggles: 1. Should I dry hop or make a hop tea? 2. When should I add the hops? Thanks! Dan

    Dry Hopping cold?

    I recently heard Scott Janish of Sapwood Cellars and the recent author of The New IPA, suggest that dry hopping around 58 could lead to less grassyness in big dry hops. I'm interested in trying this but curious about the timing. I'm would imagine this would mean postponing any dry hop until...

    Dry Hopping under Pressure, Pre-fermentation Dry Hopping, Dry Hopping Cold

    Been reading a lot of Scott Janish blogs and trying out different hopping methods. I've dry hopped early in fermentation before, trying for some of that bio transformation I've heard so much about so I decided to start with pre-fermentation dry hopping and figured it would save me on some oxygen...

    In Need of Advise (Expedited Time Tables)

    I know, I know - you can't rush good beer. Unless you over commit for a Halloween party.... I brewed a DIPA using K-97 last night for it to be ready to serve in 10 days. Yikes right? Usually for these NEIPA / DIPAs I don't sweat that time frame in a pinch (obviously more time is better). I can...

    Dry hopping with Simcoe

    First time ever dry hopping with this strain of hops and I found it had some odd properties. I used about 2 oz Simcoe and maybe 1/2 oz of Citra I had left over. I sampled the brew before dry hopping and it was tasty, but I wanted more hops up front. Oddly, the use of Simcoe seemed to add...

    Bitterness after dry hopping

    Recently brewed an Belgian ale that I whirpooled most of my hops. But when I tasted it before racking to the keg it was a little lacking on the flavor and aroma I was going for. So I figured I'd dry-hop right in the keg and get a little more out of it. I only added about 1 oz extra but I'm...

    DDH during active fermentation

    Recipe I'm brewing calls for two dry hops, one for 6 days and one for 3 days. I'd like to do the first one during active fermentation. I believe fermentation is starting to slow down. This is day 4 since pitching some Conan. I started at 63 F and raised it to 68 F last night at the end of day 3...

    Timing Dry Hops in Double IPA

    This is my first time making a DIPA and I actually slightly overshot my OG so it's gonna be a whopper (9.75% predicted ABV). It's been in the fermenter since Monday and once it got going it really took off. I'm still getting a bubble in the airlock every 5secs so the yeast is chugging away at...

    Subtle Dry Hopping of a Lager

    All the lagers I've made so far have been knockouts, I'm really happy with how they turned out. I stayed really traditional with my malt, hops and yeast choices and clearly there's a reason those recipes have lasted so long and been enjoyed by so many. So I don't want to stray too far from what...

    Dry hopping IPA well after ferementation

    I'm curious if any one here has experience with dry hopping a beer 4-6 weeks after fermentation is complete. I usually brew 10 gallons but my upcoming schedule has me not drinking beer for a couple of weeks. My plan was to ferment in 2 5-gallon carboys, dry hop a small amount during fermentation...
