General Homebrew Discussion / optimal dry hop temperature?

Warmer temps (68 -72) will extract the oils faster. I always dry hop at around 68.

I've said it many times fore, that strain will stall if you don't warm it up over 62 degrees near the end.

But, realistically, I don't think you could notice much difference between 1.013 and, say, 1.011. It will taste less sweet when it is carbonated. Carb it up and drink it!

If you want do do fruit do it as a secondary addition for the most flavor. Add it after all or most of the primary fermentation is finished.

You might consider giving it a bit of o2, as well. One of the things I heard that was interesting at NHC is that if you are not below 50% aa o2 on stuck high gravity beers is OK.

The main thing that is out of place here is the black patent. You need to go with a huskless malt such as carafa special II or III.

It's not just as simple as bumping up the hops and malt. You will want to really add a lot of late hops (hop bursting) in the last 10 minutes and more dry hops then you would think necessary. Also, the key to a good IIPA (IMO) is to have a fairly dry, uncomplicated malt bill. Use 5-10% of sugar and a mirroring amount of crystal malt to give the beer some background "sweetness" while drying the beer out so that it will not be too cloying. A good IIPA should be a showcase for the hops with the malt playing a supporting role to hold up the balance of the beer so that it doesn't become harshly bitter. I keep my BUs down around 80 with the largest hop burst going in a WP and then an equally large addition added at dry hop.

Larry McMurtry's Lonesome Dove.

The best western ever written, and one of my favorite novels of all time.  I've heard mixed reviews of his other books from the series, so I've avoided them.  I don't want anything to tarnish my Lonesome Dove!   ;)

You have to read "Comanche Moon" - almost as good as "Lonesome Dove", which is in my top 5 novels of all time. One hell of a yarn.
Oh dude, it was as good as! They all were. Read them in order. Lonesome Dove, Comanche Moon, Dead Mans Walk, Streets Of Laredo. I will say all the movies besides Lonesome Dove sucked. But the books, just great.

I didn't love SoL, it was "OK" but by far my least favorite. Lonesome Dove is a masterpiece IMO. Comanche Moon is great, but not a solid home run for me. To each his own.

But seriously, if you like LD you should check out the "Richard Sharpe" series mentioned above. Short novels, but they draw you into total absorption.
