Hey Fella's,

I'm going to rack into my secondary tonight after a 10 day primary ferment (22L), and I want to do some dry hopping to get as close a possible to LCPA.

Now..... I have taken the guess and will use:

15g Chinook (I think that's how you spell it) Hops
15g Cascade Hops

Is this enough? Is the Ratio right (ie chinook to cascade)? :blink:

Is it best to throw these pellets straight in, or boil them in 500ml of water, or maybe even find a way to "teabag" them? :unsure:

All comments welcome :D

G'day Barney,

I am currently drinking an LCPA clone I made a few months ago and I'm pretty happy with it. I dry hopped straight into the fermenter (no tea bag) 30g of Cascade. You could try some Chinook as well, but my understanding is that it is more of a bittering than an aroma hop. 30g of Cascade has given me a really pleasant hop aroma but by no means over the top. Might even use 40g next time...

Good luck,

Shawn.
