Extra hops in Dead Ringer IPA?

I received (6) 1 oz packages of the hopes in my Dead Ringer IPA but the recipe only calls for 5 total ounces. Is the recipe wrong or did I get an extra hops package?

If dead ringer is a two hearted clone it could use more dry hops IMO

So the recipe calls for 1 oz hops at beginning of boil, another 1 oz with 20 min remaining, and then 2 oz with 5 min remaining. Would you suggest maybe 1 oz with 10 min remaining? I guess it is homebrew so I can do whatever I want. But suggestions would be appreciated.

I think the last one is for dry hopping

Yep, you are right, they get added in during the second fermentation.


When I brew Dead Ringer I always buy extra hops so I can add 2oz for dry hopping a week before bottling.

If you can… get even more and utilize them AFTER primary fermentation is done… Don’t be bashful… Alls that will get you is mediocre home brew… Sneezles61

Packaging error. A while ago I received the Dead Ringer with 8 one ounce packets of hops. Just recently added one of them to my Chinook IPA.

Store the extra in the freezer until needed.

I wonder if they have too many hops and are selectively thinning out the old… Sneezles61

A little extra hops tossed in makes for a happy customer maybe repeat customer. Great marketing or sloppy packer either way works for me. Ive never brewed a kit except a couple of freebies. When I look at them they always seem skimpy. I guess to keep the price down
