dry hop schedule BH Eff. was created by Will2233
Hello,
I have 2 of Gash's recipes fermenting at the moment.
My question is around the dry hopping schedule.
One is dry hop 4.0 days and the other is dry hop 5.0 days, does that mean add the hops after 4 and 5 days?
Any advice is welcome.

Also my figures for BH efficiency is always down on the recipes I download for the Robobrew V3.
the recipes are usually showing BH eff. of 78%, if I drop mine to around 72% in Beersmith the estimated and actuals get close.
As I strive for better efficiency do I in the meantime set my Robobrew profile to say 72%.
I hope this makes sense.
William

Changing the efficiency is perfectly fine and a couple of pints difference means very little difference in grains etc, so many variables can change efficiency, water, grain, crush, pH etc.

About the dry hops. which recipe? Cheers!

Hi Gash,
One is the Zombie Lust, which has 75g of Citra, dry hop at 4.0 days.
Cheers,
William

A normal dry hop for me is day 4 to 6. when ever I see the krausen falling or whenever you're a few points before the end of ferment. I dry hop and raise the temp to finish off. That usually takes another 4 days, then I crash chill for 2 days
All up it usually takes me about 12 days, some times a day or two longer here and there depending on the beer and the ferment, make sure your yeast is healthy!

If its a hazy ipa,pale or neipa then you dry hop about day 2, and then again just before end of ferment. Cheers!

Zombie Lust, its really hard to convey in Beersmith hop details, guess people like me should write notes, but I have the videos so I dont go into detail much, but I should.
What it means in that is that I dry hopped for 4 days. I dont remember exactly off the top of my head when I did it, probably day 6. but that depends on how the ferment is going as I described above. DOes that make sense? Cheers!

Thanks Gash,
It makes sense now, sounds like it is not a hard or fast rule.
It sounds like I should add the dry hops depending on the ferment of each batch.
Thanks again,
William

Another couple of questions if you don't mind Gash,
Is there a link to your no chill hop chart I saw on your Youtube channel also what recipe of yours has the latest Robobrew profile that I can copy into BS.
Thanks again,
William
