Apologies if this has been covered, but I searched and couldn't find exactly what I was looking for.
How does everyone count the number of days they dry hop for? Do you count it as:
a) X days after putting them in the fermenter until the beer is racked to bottles/kegs, or
X days after putting them in the fermenter until you begin to cold crash
I have just bumped my brew that was fermenting at 18 up to 21 for a diacetyl rest as it is down to 1.017 from 1.042. For this one, I plan to let it reach terminal gravity prior to dry hopping. I will probably then dry hop, let sit for 3 days and then do a 2 day cold crash.
