My current IPA I did the following after reading this article on Scott Janish about cold dry hopping. I cold crashed three days, warmed to 50 degrees, hopped for 2 days and crashed again for 1 then bottled.
So far the results have been great. The aroma and flavors are still bright after almost a month.
But since this is the first data point I will certainly be trying it again.


I crashed to 35 for 3 days, dry hopped for 2 (still at 35), then kegged. Liked the results so well I’m doing the same on another beer right now.

After the podcast I may go colder next time. Thanks
