    Dry hopped for too long?

    Hi, I dry hopped my APA in monday with 50g of pellets. I was intending to bottle on thursday/ friday but my plans changed so it wont be bottled until sunday probably. Is this an issue after dry hopping or will the flavours remain the same? Thanks

    Yet Another Dry Hop Question

    Looking for advice on a dry hop schedule for a pale ale that just finished with primary fermentation. It's a Columbus, Cascade, Amarillo pale at about 30 IBUs.

    Dry Hop Genius?

    I feel like I just had either a brilliant idea, or a completely idiotic idea: I have had problems with dry hopped beers clogging up my beer lines when I keg. But it always clogs at the poppet. Is there any reason to install a poppet in the line out fitting? This would let me cold crash in the...

    Extending primary from 2 weeks to 5 weeks

    Hey everyone, We brewed an American Pale Ale 7 days ago. It's been sitting around 61F in our SS Brew bucket. The original recipe calls for 2 weeks in primary at 68F 2 weeks of keg conditioning at 60F and a 7 day dry hop. We don't Keg condition, so thats one thing. But the main thing is we...

    A lot of sediment/trub in bottles

    What’s up brewers? I made my third extract batch a few weeks ago which was a zombie dust clone. I let it ferment for 3 weeks and dry hopped it during the second week. It has been conditioning in bottles for two weeks. However, there is a lot of sediment in the bottles. It smells really good and...

    Green hop flavor

    Hi guys, I just brewed my first NEIPA and I put a lot of hops in it (12 oz in 5.5 gallon batch). I noticed a "green" hop flavor, like if you just tasted raw hop pellets. I dry hopped once during early fermentation and once more in the keg. The beer is quiet young (about 2 weeks) so I'm thinking...

    (ANOTHER) NEIPA Question

    I currently have a NEIPA in my fermenter, bubbling happily. I added the first dry hop today, 48 hours after pitching yeast. I know double dry hopping is pretty standard procedure with these kinds of beers, and I was planning on doing the second dry hop once the beer has been transferred into the...

    Dry Hop Sanitization

    I looked around a bit and was reading that yes the dry hop bag should be sanitized but what about pre-package ones? In my case the pellets are sealed in the bag already and I’m not sure if it’s ok to spray the whole bag, hops included with starsans or if I need to find a way to break it open...
