Thanks on the yeast, I need to look at the study again.

You still secondary? Or is that a keg?

I only secondary if dry hopping or adding fermentables.  Otherwise, no. Used to dry hop in the serving keg, but I've gone back to traditional methods and find I prefer it.

I’m going to have to experiment with cold dry hopping again. Sucks having to buy yeast constantly

I used to do cold all the time.  I've now done a couple of batches where I dry hopped warm in primary towards the end of fermentation and then cold crashed it before moving to kegs.  I think the hop character is different but I'm not sure I definitely prefer it to my old method of clearing the beer up and then leaving my dry hops in the keg while serving.

you have to be shitting me!  so my cold dry hopping wasn't so crazy after all!

 

next up I predict leaving the hops in contact with cold beer isn't an issue.  just wait!

I have dry hopped in a serving keg and the hops were in for months

Me too but very recently there were posts here and elsewhere linking to evidence that these things were not the best practices. I don't blame anyone here or anything. We are all looking for the process change that will take our beer to the next level.
