I'm often questioned about my short drying hopping schedules, I read this a couple of years ago, tried it and I really like the results so I only dry hop for 2 days, although I leave them in for the two day crash chill as well. Basically most aroma etc is extracted from the hops in about 6 hours, and at 4 days starts dropping. This is for pellet hops. Thanks to Peter Harold Wolfe for all the hard work!

Thanks - This is a great read with some useful insight.

I also noted section - 1.6.1 Packaging and its potential ability to scalp dry-hop flavor

I've been considering a Stainless Steel fermenter for this reason.

Has anyone had any experience with these? www.ssbrewtech.com/collections/fermenters

Bought one and christened it yesterday. I'll let you know how it goes.

Initial thoughts observations though are that it is much easier to close that plastic lids.

I am most interested in the finished product though. I made a variant of your hightail ale recipe so hopefully it turns out well and has that extra bit of hop bounce.

Hi again, my NEIPA started fermenting sturday night, has been bubbling madly since. However I have just checked it (Monday night) and it has stopped bubbling. I was going to dry hop day 4/7 - should I still stick to plan?cheers, Rob

My experience is it produces a fuller bodied beer with a higher FG.Attenuation being 70 to 75% Cheers
