I am at day 5 of the dry hop.  A little excitement...  Out of nowhere, the nelson/chinook batch smells REALLY NICE now despite smelling like dry grass for 3-4 days prior.  Getting a bit excited on that one.  Quite
bizarre is that the beers look totally different too.  NS/Chinook is much cloudier.  I am doing my best to really swirl the carboys about 2x a day to rouse the hops.  I am just going by smell here with no regard to time...


Sounds tasty! Nelson/Chinook is a nice combo IMO. Betting the cloudier appearance has to do with higher hop oils for that combo - they're pretty potent compared to some.
