Secondary Fermentation?

(1/2) > >>

hiphophead:
I fermented my ipa for 10 days afer using wyeast propagator with a starter wort and now have racked it into my secondary plus dry hopped with  1.5 oz. of Cascade leaf hops.  Im planning on kegging this for my first kegging experience so really how long should i keep it in the secondary?

bendbrew:
I have heard that with fresh hops you should keg within a week.  That said, the key marker is your final gravity.  If you have reached that then keg

majorvices:
1-2 weeks is fine for dry hopping. FTR I know it is too late now next time just get a hop sock and dry hop directly in the keg. There is no need to secondary in a carboy if you have a keg for most beers. A keg is basically a big secondary - blow out the sediment with the fort pint or two and you are ready to go!

I typically rack right into the keg over the dry hops after fermentation is complete.

The hops don't start to taste grassy after a while?
