Yep yep cold crash if you can...
You got it. More than about three days' contact time runs the risk of getting some flavors. I don't think they're what you're after: Grassy, vegetal....
Im not very experienced but considering what i´ve read and my 4 previous brews i would say that dry hops is mostly for Aroma.
Just let them for 4-5 days. After, do a cold Crash and you everything will settle down.
So 2 days of cold crashing and then bottle? Today will be the 3rd day for dry hopping. There is still a layer of green on the top.
Yes. WEll, i leave it overnight and ist enough to get all the sedments. However im using tee bags to hold the hops during dry hopping, i think this helps a bit. i believe ist common sense that leaving the dry hopping for more than 5 days can add a grassy character to the beer.
I would cold Crash and check how it Looks, i think you should get a compact sedment up to 3 days of cooling.
let us know how its going
