Don't need 5 days for a dry hop. Recent research suggests less is so much more.
I am "The Little Red Brooster"

Fermenting: Blitzkrieg Hop
Conditioning:
Drinking: Brown Sugar "How come you taste so good" (Brown Ale), Song For Keith, 4 Hops To Heaven, No Stout About It (Porter), From Russia With Love (RIS), Twist & Stout, Reasons To Be Beerful (Part Three)

Up Next: Hollywood Perfume (American Kolsch), With A Bitter Luck, Yellow Light
Planning: Spring drinking Beer

Interesting. Was considering dry hopping a bitter I am currently brewing. Might drop them in at the same time as I am crash cooling. Usually dry hop at fermenting temp.
I think Brewdog dry hop at 14C.
