Dry Hopping Problem
« on: January 20, 2012, 07:11:45 PM »
In my last APA, and AIPA, I dry hopped with 2oz. of hop pellets.  The pellets were
divided into two sheer knee high pantyhose, and left to float for 2 weeks.  The problem I'm having is with a harsh, acrid sort of aftertaste.  Now, I'm wondering if
The pantyhose didn't sink to the bottom of the kegs, and were laying right where
the beer enters the diptube.  Any thoughts?

Maybe whoever last wore the pantyhose had Athlete's Foot ?

So you dry hopped in the kegs right?  Also, depending on the hops, two weeks could be too long of a time.  What variety of hops are you dry hopping with?  What temp are you dry hopping at?

I always dry hop in the primary around 65-70 degrees for around a week with great results.
