#JeremySays – Dry Hopping

‘Hop Creep’ is a thing. Using T-90 pellets in the dry hop can cause refermentation due to the plant material interacting with the yeast.  This can further dry your beer out, or cause excessive diacetyl production. 

I like to use cryo-hops to avoid this and keep my T-90’s in the kettle. You can also just give your yeast a few extra days to clean up the diacetyl. Some yeast strains that tend to flock really well may have a problem here. Just make sure you transfer the beer off the hops by day 10 to avoid vegetal off-flavors. Brewers have seen a huge increase in ‘Hop Creep’ due to turnover times in the cellar decreasing significantly in recent years! Cheers!
