added cans into fermenter with wort.

Hello there Madiman, Im no expert on dry hopping, but from time to time I may do it. One thing I find is the dry hop addition gives a raw hop taste if not given a couple of weeks to settle down. I did find this article which you might find of interest. However it does make the point that adding dry hops doesn't affect the bitterness, but I've heard that a small amount of bitterness can happen.
Give it a go and see what you think. Cheers mate.

No worries, you've posted it in Social Chatter, second one down at the moment. And that's a good place to post to throw questions out there. Your other post ,Recipe Please is above it. Cheers Tim. Also English bitters are sometimes dry hopped with EKG into the cask. If your keen I would go with 30 grams on day 3, but as I said I'm no expert but that's what i would be keen to do. Good luck.

Brewing a familiar Dark Mild later today. (hint: Was the bastard tired? Or was he run over by a tire (tyre). No one really knows). One thing for sure. It will be a treat when done. Cheers!
