Procedure Only thing a bit different was the dry hopping- I used multiple additions, splitting the 1oz Cascade pellets and .5oz Centennial whole hops into 3 additions about 3 or so days apart for the last 10 days in the bucket. I'd heard this would give slightly different aroma notes- not really sure if it did anything as i had no control group to compare to, but I thought it turned out good.
