    I would like to try a clone of the Peeper myself. For your dry hopping, could you describe your two-stage process? Did you put in one addition for five days and then add a second addition to that for another five days? Thank you.

      2.5 Days in two different stages. Although I’ve found since that I don’t really get much extra with the two step dry hopping. I think you get just as much in a single dose.
