OK i've read and tried to sort the good advice from the not so good. Still a little unsure. I've just added my dry hops to FV at day 3 (ferment almost done). I plan to crash chill FV tomorrow or day after and was concerned whether or not the dry hopping process would carry on as well as if I hadn't crash chilled. My mind says it should be fine simply because you can dry hop a chilled keg. Does anyone else dry hop and crash chill?
Cheers

What gravity is it at? Are you confirming by hydro sample?

Ive dry hopped while chilling many times.

hydrometer reads 1012 and expecting to go to about 1009. Glad to hear you've done it many times Yob. Good enough for me.
