@hoppyscotty - another possibility, if you are looking to reduce cost, is the re-use of dry hopping hops as bittering hops in a following batch. I have not tried it myself but I don’t see why it wouldn’t work provided you can adjust your recipe for using wet hops and you are happy to use your dry hop variety for bittering bittering. By using wet hops, you would also also be reducing wort losses compared with rehydrating dry hops in the boil. More faffing!
I have done this a few times when I am following one brew after the other, it works well and conserves precious leaf hops for me, I cannot obtain leaf hops in South Africa where I live so have to get them when relatives visit, that is why I do it. I also finger my trub, why waste precious ale, I also get more from my whirlpool hops with a squeeze, I just use very fine mesh bags nothing fancy and get good results.
