Dry Hopping
« on: June 12, 2011, 10:26:37 AM »
I set a recipe to dry hop for 7 days. I have an initila fermentation of 7 days with a secondary of 7 days. Work doesn't allow me to work with beer during the week. The I can find no where on when yto add the dry hop and Bsmith puts it in with hte bottling/kegging. Is this a bug? Acn anyone give some specifics on how to use dryhopping in this.

Hi,
  If you add the hops and select use as "dry hops" it will add it as a dry hop.

  The dry hops are listed under "Prepare for bottling/kegging" on the brew sheet - right after the secondary fermentation.  The idea is to add them about 7 days before bottling/kegging to preserve maximum aroma.

Yes I did. When I look at the "Brew Steps" page/print out it has the 1 oz of dry hop listed under bottling and kegging ingredients. not with the secondary fermentation. This would be confusing to someone getting the printed recipe.
