Then, when can you dry hop effectively? Do I need to wait for a period of time before adding dry hops to the primary? I don't bother with secondary. For the few IPA's I've done this with, I ferment for 7 and then add dry hops for 7 before bottling. Is this the best way or can I add them earlier or should I add them later?
Am I correct in noticing that the finish of a beer and change how I taste the hops? So could a more sweet beer impart a more fruity hop taste?
In addition to dry hopping for all of my IIPA's and IPA"s I've added a 60 minutes hop stand. I know it adds more time to the brew day but I feel like the IPA's benefit significantly from the hops stand addition.
As far as your pond goes, if you can't do fish maybe invest in some ducks instead. They're great bug control for the garden, and you get tasty eggs as a bonus.
And coyotes and other varmints love them.
This is true top cropping yeast and requires fermenter headspace of 33%.
