Extract/Partial Mash Brewing / Re: Dry Hop in Primary?

Thanks so much for the the advice. The IPA I just bottled I dry hopped 2 oz Cascade for eight days, so next time I will adjust the amounts and shorten up the time.

Extract/Partial Mash Brewing / Dry Hop in Primary?
« on: March 28, 2013, 08:37:08 PM »
When I brewed my first batch a few months ago, a red ale from a kit,  I forgot to add the flavoring hops in the last 5 min.  So what I did was dry hop them. After about 4 days when the vigorous feremntation was over I put the pellets in the primary and bottled in 10 days. I thought the beer came out pretty good, with a nice little hop nose. I just bottled an IPA, and I did the same thing, threw in the Cascade after the virgorous fementation phase ended. Everything I have read says if you dry hop, use a secondary. Is there any reason NOT to dry hop in the primary as I have done? I would rather not use a secondary partly because I am lazy and it is also one more stage that exposes the ale to possible contamination and or oxygen.

Extract/Partial Mash Brewing / Recipe Suggestion
« on: March 28, 2013, 08:00:39 PM »
Making a batch for the lady of the house who happens to like Henry's Blonde. I think it is a lager, but I am looking for an extract ale recipe that might come close. Google has returned precious little except that the hops may be Cascade. I am fairly new to brewing, so I could use some help creating a recipe. I have been looking at Blonde Ale recipes for ideas. Would appreciate any suggestions. Normally I would not be interested in cloning Henry's but after all, she's the one who bought me my brewing kit and got me started.  :)
