I will be honest, 4 oz seems low for 10g but that is me. I would think at least 8 oz for the first dry hop and then another 4-5 in each keg.


Yeah, I was thinking to do a little more than that in the keg so a similar amount of overall hops.

So I'm thinking I'll do this over Xmas. Given that I plan on using the dry yeast blend does that affect suggestions on the use of oats and wheat? I also may get another nylon bag for dry hopping in primary if it seems like my tea ball is too small.

It would be cool to be able to make a neipa not using 1318 since that's what everyone does. I think the dry yeast blend would make this style a little bit more approachable since no starter is required.

I have not used 1318 on a batch of NEIPA in a while. I just do not like it as much as others do.  I will say 1450 works great in NE style beers as well.  I would get a big bag so those hops have plenty of swimming space!

 

I have used the dry blend with oats and wheat and both work well.  I tend to gravitate to wheat because that is what I have a lot of on hand most days.  I do not think you can go wrong with either.

 

Did we talk mash temp?  I stick around 155-154.

That's a pretty common mash temp for me. Good to know.

What do you guys use for dry hop bags? Normally I just go to the home brew shop.

RiteBrew has some very fine mesh ones. I use those when I use bags.

I have something like this that I like except for the way you have to put the lid on which infuriates me.

I find those are good but only for 3 MAYBE 4 oz of hops.  I think the better way to use that is as a strainer of the diptube.

 

I have bought a couple if the cheap amazon ones and they are fine by me.

I kind of wonder if the one I have would sit higher than the liquid level if the top was not on it. That would be an easy way to keep the hops from clogging things up in primary. I assume otherwise I need drill a hole in something which I seem to remember you doing.

I drilled a hole in teh cover for one and another one I have a tea strainer ball that fits in the opening perfectly that I punched a hole in so that I would not ruin the lid.

Will the mesh tubes fit on a corny dip tube without trimming the tube?

Also ordered some 1450. I can't stop.

I assume you mean trimming off the bottom.  Mine did, I may have bent the tube in a bit but cannot remember.  I know I did not trim.

do you find the 300 micron mesh does a good job of keeping things from clogging up?

 

something like this is pretty cheap: https://www.amazon.c...ds=hop strainer

300 is good for me. That will be fine over a diptube.

I read in the comments at sjanish that you can put regular plastic ball lid covers on these cheap mesh tubes.  not sure if that is needed.  how well does the one you drilled a hole in work at keeping hop debris out (particularly around the hole)?
