Yah the pellets dissolve, the 2 oz currently dryhopping for me dissolved after 24 hours and are kinda mixed with the leaf hops at the top and bottom of my carboy. they usually completely settle after about a week, leaf hops take a little longer, but I am dry hopping this batch for 3-4 weeks so basic...

From my experiences when using pellets they do dissolve and if you dry hop for at least a weak tend to settle to the bottom making it easy to keep it clear as long as you are careful with your siphon. I added and ounce of NZ cascade whole hops, 1 oz of centennial pellets and 1 oz of american cascade...

I have dry hopped with pellets and whole hops and always just add them straight to secondary without a bag. When I do a long dry hop, i.e. 3 weeks or more the whole flowers will eventually become saturated enough to sink. Pellets always end up sinking about a week after addition. Tomorrow I will be ...

What are you trying to acheive by using a lager yeast, naturally an IPA is just that, a pale Ale, not that you cant make a strong hoppy lager....in the end I dont see there being too many recipe changes as much as how you brew and ferment the recipe.

I have used Green Bullet and am currently using a NZ Cascade for dry hopping a Mac & Jacks clone. The bullet was used for bittering but can also be used for aroma if you like, worked very well and I liked the outcome wasn't too bitter considering the high AA and did have a slight fruityness to it bu...

Kegged an IPA about 5 days ago that was a close facsimile to the Sierra Nevada Anniversary Ale(same ingredients, close original and final gravities). Waiting another 3-5 days to really enoy it but did a taster last night and it was very good. About to get the ingredients to attempt a Mac & Jacks clo...
