I take it you ate the kale first, which is why it's not in the picture?

Bwahahahaha! We missed you at Minneapolis Tommy and Pete!

Funny stuff, Pete. Tommy, you and I share the same MO - when my family goes out of town, I run for the biggest ribeye and potato I can find and fire up the grill . And several homebrews ( just to be sure it digests properly, of course).  :)

I think New Orleans, along with Las Vegas, is a city that shouldn't host a conference, for the collective good of the membership.

I'm thinking 5 days at 65-70f.
After primary fermentation i will be holding around the same temp so I'm inclined to believe that too much heating and cooling of the finished beer could possibly cause some off flavors?
On the other hand I'm still learning.

5 days of room temp hopping works just fine IMO. Did it for a long time.

Thanks alot guys.

Any thoughts on dry hopping temps?

Sent from my SM-G930P using Tapatalk

Since I keg hop, the beer is room temp for several hours as it gets cold in the kegerator. Some claim that they get a vegetal character from dry hopping at mostly colder temps. I and several others here don't. People perceive hop character differently, sometimes very differently.The biggest thing to remember is that extraction is quicker done at room temps as opposed to cold temps (ie., cold = slower). I've done both and liked the results.

Well, that's a tough one to answer. It depends on what style you're brewing and your personal preference on how much dry hop character you prefer. So I'll tell you what I like and (as a reference) also tell you that I like a fairly high amount in my APAs and AIPAs:

APA - .5 - .6 oz/gallon

AIPA - .9 - 1.1 oz/gallon (depending on what I'm shooting for)

IIPA (don't brew them as often now) - 1.2 - 1.3 oz/gallon

There ya go. It's a good start!

Edit -  I like to keg hop in 5 gallon paint strainer bags FWIW. There are lots of ways to hop though.

Who cares? Half the homebrewers I know make beer better than most commercial breweries.

Same here.

Well since ABI bought out Northern Brewer , it seemed there for the a joke, not politics! Damn. No, opinion on the state of beer and the craft beer industry (even as a stupid joke) doesn't approach politics unless I'm blaming politicians or parties. Lighten up.

No brewing this weekend. Turned in a few entries for the Indiana Brewer's Cup and past that, am changing seals on the kegs I use most. Getting ready to go on a lager brewing binge in a couple weeks - Marzen, Helles, Helles Exportbier, and Pils. Probably a standard bock in there, too. Perfectly good day to drink homebrew, though.

Maybe ABI bought out/sponsored all the urinals ( I assume it's a urinal)? ;D  I think it's oversparging at this point.

Wyeast 3068 held around 65-66F holds the excess banana in check, and enhances the clove character IME. Not a big fan of the banana bomb hefes either. $0.02 .

Tuesday I collected 14 gal of wort designed for the AHA recipe for early version of Blind Pig, and split it between two kettles -- one for a 5-gal batch of Blind Pig clone, the other for a 5-gal batch of an IPA I came up with that has Azacca, Amarillo, Citra and Mosaic (late-loaded -- FWH, 10, 5, 0 and 30-min hop stand).  All went pretty well and I got my volume and hit the target OG, but I should have started with 1 - 2 more gal of wort total.

Both sound good!
