It’s Day 8 and time to add the dry hops to the brew. The gravity is down from 1074 to 1030, so still a week to go. 150g of Columbus hops go into the vat – wow, the whole boat fills with the pungent aroma of those alpha acids . . a quick sample of the brew … hmmm, doesn’t taste too sweet, yum … give it another 5 – 10 days and then into the barrel.
