Do any of you dry hop in the keg?  And if so, what is your technique?

My first-year hop crop, plucked and currently dehydrating. From left to right: cascade; centennial; magnum. Should have enough here to do a couple batches. Exciting!

+Robert Archibald Yeah, you're right. Once they were dried I weighed out about 1.5 oz. Hey, it's my first time! Hoping for a much better yield next year. I will say, those Magnums went nutso during the last half of August.

Brewed just over a week ago. I'm heading off on a two-week vacation, so here it is heading into a secondary. And hopefully it'll be ready to bottle when I get back!

It's a IPA, and based on a few samples, I suspect it will push my boundaries of how much bitterness I like. By the end of the batch, I'll either really like IPAs, or have made a lot of friends who do!

Opened the first of mi Red IPA last night. It is good. I would have wanted more hop character. I used Hop Shot at 60 min in the boil and the bitterness is very smooth. 1 oz of Amarillo and .5 oz of Simcoe went at flame out and another set of the same for dry hoping. It's very drinkable none the less.

What a great day! I finally got to brew after about an 8 month hiatus.

I tweaked my Irish Red called "Hogette's Red" almost everything except the water and hops.

I hit my gravity numbers but I mashed 6° degrees lower than intended. 146 instead 152. It will be dryer but hopefully not too much.

The little assistant is Happy the Brewer! He came home with us from our trip to Legoland as a custom built mini figure.

Cheers to homebrew!

Nightwing for +BOOMstick Brew has been bottled! My first time with Star San, and it was a breeze. I feel so much better now, relying on more than just Easy Clean.

'Don't fear the foam!' Looks like a good haul.

I think my cat just hissed at the fermenting beer...it must smell funny to him. (He's also not the sharpest tool on the crayon box.)

Cat is potato.

Mine likes to 'investigate' the gravity fed water bottle they have when it gurgles. The airlock was a source of wonderment for her for about 4 days. Just... constant staring.

Hmmm...The Stout with Two Brains has seemed to stop quite a bit short of target gravity. Have tried swirling a couple days. Hoping moving to secondary will wake up the yeast a bit and allow it to finish.

+Jeremy Johnson: no, it's CO2. Our club sage (Dave Houseman, Zymurgy mag judge) gave the recommendation, longer time in primary fermenter and jostle the yeast out of their bottom sleep without oxygen (contamination risk).
