dry hop time and taste?

(1/4) > >>

dzlater:
I dry hopped in the keg with an ounce of fuggles pellets
It tasted pretty good before the dry hop
I know the hops need to sit in there for at least
a few days. But I had to try a sample the next day.
It tastes pretty awful. Is that kind of a standard thing for
dry hopped beers? I will give it some more time but I am really tempted to
get those hops out of that keg

recipe
8 lbs maris otter
8 oz. crystal 10L
0.5 oz northern brewer 10.6 aa @ 60 min
2 oz kent goldings 4.5% aa @ 30 min
1.5 oz kent goldings @ 1 min
1 oz fuggles dry hop in keg

denny:
AFAIAC, that's what you get with Fuggle dry hops.  My personal experience and tastes tell me to avoid Fuggles as dry hops.

dzlater:
Lesson learned
if you use a hop for it's aromatic qualities
you should probably smell them first

I took them out.

stout_fan:
