[quote=“raspsu1”]I plan to try my Black IPA next week. I’ve never made any type of IPA or dry hopped before.
I’m not sure I want to mess with dry hopping so I was planning on just adding .75-1 oz of hops at flame out to try to squeeze out some extra aroma.
Does anyone else not mess with dry hopping and just load up at flame out?[/quote]
unless you’re making a 3gal batch, i wouldn’t call adding .75-1oz “loading up” at flameout
if you are going to forgo dryhop (whic I don’t recommend - flameout and dryhop are different) i’d do at least 2, 3 oz even better at flameout.
to give you an example, I made my house IPA (10gal) last night, among many other additions, there was 4oz at flameout, and then there’ll be another 4oz for dryhop once fermentation is complete.
