Dry Hopping
« on: May 14, 2021, 03:18:02 PM »
Denny Conn had mentioned recently,  in an online post by Craft Beer and Brewing, about a new method he discovered for dry hopping for just a short time. I lost track of the details but think it was for just a few days at lager temps. Does anyone have info on this? It sounded like a great idea.

I have switched from warm to cold dry hopping and it works really good. Usually 2 days 34-39F. BSG has good information on their website:https://bsgcraftbrewing.com/reevaluating-dry-hop-techniques My usual method is in primary fermentation after cold crashing and let the hops hang in a nylon sanitized bag.
