QuoteI left out the bit about gassing off and scrubbing though because i want to keep it as simple as possible and apparently in a 23L brew the effects are minimal..
QuoteCiderhead - This is from coopers "Technical Development Manager, Brewing Products"."It doesn't make a lot of difference at what stage, during ferment, the dry hop addition is made. It's really more a matter of adding when convenient. The notion of CO2 gas scrubbing out hop aroma during fermentation doesn't really apply to tiny wort volumes such as 23litres."The stuff this man doesn't know about homebrew could be engraved on a grain of rice. Personally, I prefer to stick them in at the start so that once the FV is sealed it stays sealed until the brew is moving to another vessel or bottle. Infection from hops is unlikely once the bag is clean.But for argument's sake I'll change to a bit later as that's the way most folks like to do it.
QuoteEach to their own.I've already updated it to 'add a hop teabag' a one armed blind monkey could do that.
