Three dry hop additions.
« on: January 12, 2012, 04:26:34 AM »
I brewed this http://wiki.homebrewersassociation.org/BigBrew08
I am getting ready to do the second dry hop addition which the recipe says to do in a secondary fermenter.
I was thinking of either adding them to the primary, or racking to a keg, dry hopping in the keg , let it sit for a week, removing them and then adding the third keg addition.
Would it matter if I don't rack to secondary and either add the second addition to the primary , or just do the second and third additions in the keg?

"Rack to secondary with the second dry hop addition and store for three weeks"

  Should be fine to add the second hop addition in the primary then keg with the third addition. Four weeks is about as long as I would want to leave beer in the primary without getting worried.
