I have done one batch with dry hopping. It was my Christmas Ale '89,
and it turned out quite well (if I do say so myself!).
I waited until the second day after pitching the yeast, when I had a
good head of foam going. I then added 1.5 oz. hops, and stirred them
in. Three days later I racked to secondary, leaving the hops behind. I
bottled one week after that.
I was concerned about infection, but I figured that it would take at
least a month or two to become noticeable. Since I made this batch
mostly to give away, I told the recipients to drink it up before
Christmas on this account.
I'll certainly use this technique again.
