Thinking ahead to next week, I'm looking at the below instructions from my kit...
"After 5-7 days of fermentation, add 1 oz. Ahtanum, 1 oz Amarillo and 1 oz. Simcoe hops. You can add the hops directly to the sanitized secondary fermenter and rack on top of the hops – you’ll get more from the hops this way. If you are using a single stage fermenting system, then leave the beer in the fermenter for two weeks total and carefully add the hops to the primary fermenter. Allow this to age for 7-10 days. Optionally, you can use a spare fine nylon bag to hold the dry hops, but this is not required."
I've never used a secondary (I have a 5 gallon carboy for this) and I'm wondering will the beer be better going this route vs. adding these hops straight to the primary?
I'm curious if the quality of the end result will outweigh the risk of infection.
