Yeah actually I only dry hopped for 5 days. The final 5 days of secondary fermentation.
But the bag I had the hops in simply let a lot of hops dust into the brew. The beer came out quite a bit cloudier than right after boiling. And the dust did not settle so inside the bottles there was still extraction going on until it was like grass juice.
It really is a shame if one considers the amount of time that went into doing it. But hey, that is learning.
I actually will not dry hop next time. May you please describe the "hop tea" method? are you extracting the hops in a smaller volume of low temperature water? I would guess that is not so effective, or am I mistaken?
I also did some further research regarding the sharps hops an reread a forum page and found this:
Aurora, Hallertau (probably MittelfrÃ¼h?), Northdown, Northern Brewer and Perle
those are supposed to be the main hops sharps uses. If I look at the data of these hops varieties it makes me switch the combination "Bramling Cross/First Gold" for "Bramling Cross/Northern Brewer". What do you guys think?
I also did not recieve an answer of them so far. Not even a hint.
