I am brewing an snpa clone recipe today that calls for.5 oz cascade at flameout, and .5 dry hopped. According to SN's site, this brew is not dry hopped. Should I just add the extra .5 oz at flameout, or do you guys think it would benefit from dry hopping?
If I do dry hop, do I just through the pellets into the secondary, or should I sanitize them first?
Also, does the beer need to be racked again after dry-hopping, or just bottled?

I would dry-hop it,, dry hopped flavor and aroma is most impressive
put your pellets in a "hop-bag" and you can rack strait to bottling bucket,
haha, don't even try to sanitize your hops, I do sanitize my hop-bags

My current version of SNPA uses 2 oz at flameout and I dry hop 1 oz. I sometimes keg with an ounce in the keg too.
I don't worry about sanitizing my hop bag. I just make sure its clean. After fermentation the alcohol in the beer should protect it. No infections yet.

Dry hop, toss pellets in keg (they'll sink in 2-3 weeks) then transfer with racking cane to bottling vessel, add sugar, bottle.

I was at Magic Hat Brewery in Burlington, VT this past weekend (we had an awesome personal tour with the brewmaster!), and during the tour the assistant brewer tossed the dry hops into the primary fermenter. It had been fermenting for about 2 days and still had a thick (but receeding) krausen.
I was thinking of doing just that for my next bitter.
Has anyone here ever tried this ? What were the results ?

I recently made a SNPA clone and dry hopped both the aroma and finishing Cascade (one oz. total). Turned out really well, I think dry hopping adds the perfect touch to pale ales.

Don I agree, 1/4 to 1/2 dry hopping is my taste.
