Okay..so i've been experimenting with dry hopping (really...i'm new to it). I found it very strange the small amounts people use (in regular beers..not IPAs).

I dried hopped three beers so far:

1- Cream Ale (this one is just....GREAT...yea..i made it great!)

Hops for a 17 liter batch (in fermenter)

60 min- Aramis 6 gr

15 min- Aramis 6 gr

0 min- Aramis 6 gr for 15 minutes

Dry hop 2 days prior to bottling - Aramis 69 gr (yea...).

2- Saison

Hops for a 14 litre batch

60 min- EKG 23 gr

0 min - EKG 22 gr

Dry hop 2 days prior to bottling - Saaz 70 gr

3- Cream Ale (finishing fermenting) 14 liter

60 min- Target 5 gr

15 min- target 5 gr

0 min - Amarillo 10 gr for 10 minutes

Dry Hop- Amarillo 40 gr estimated 5 days

First batch is awesome. I think i love Aramis! Citrus and floral aroma...and Flavor. Nice..nice...nice...

Second batch is.....a Saison! Very faint hop aroma (in fact very similar to the ones i did not dry hop).

Third one... dunno, bur the aroma is nothing like the one Aramis hops gave me in fermenter...

So: why do ppl use so little hops when dry hopping???? I mean...i never brewed an IPA but, i'm thinking that for a 14 liter batch i would have to use 10 or more grams per liter!

That rule 5-10-15 really seems to make sense! (5 gr per liter regular beer, 10 gr/L for IPAs and 15 gr/L for DIPAs).

Dunno...I'm confused...but loved the Aramis hops! And i can't find them now!!!
