Dry hop question
« on: March 21, 2015, 11:08:31 PM »
We just brewed a lager that calls for a dry hopping for 5 days. Do we add them during fermentation or at the end of the lager period?

Pretty much any time after fermentation is finished.

For lagers, I like to add them about a week before tapping, ie., at the end of the lagering period.
