I am just a beginner, only having my first batch currently in primary fermentation. Reading the directions that came with my kit it tells me in one step to do a second fermentation for 2 to 4 weeks. While the next step is adding hops 1-2 weeks before bottling day. My question is if I ferment for 4 weeks then do I put the hops in during week 2? Or do I ferment for 4 weeks then do 2 additional weeks adding the hops? Thank you in advance for any advice.
It would mean adding the hops at 2 weeks into your secondary; if your secondary is 4 weeks long and you want it to sit on dry-hops for 2 weeks, then add them at 2 weeks before you bottle.
Incidentally, I'll note that most commercial brewers only dry hop for a handful of days, not weeks. And "secondary" is generally useless on this sort of timeframe. You can probably get away with doing a 2-week primary, adding the dry hops a 3-5 days before you rack out of the primary vessel.
