I would like to try to dry hop.  A couple of questions...

1.  What styles does this work well with?

2.  Do I use the "aroma" hop for this?

Thanks,
Mike

Any style that calls for a lot of hop aroma, Pilsners, IPA's, APA's do very
well with dry hopping. Any beer you like and any hop you like work as well.

Afew questions...
I know what an IPA is, but what is an APA?
Second, about how much do I use?

Thanks,
Mike

apa is a american pale ale like a sierra nevada. how much depends on how

and

I typically use ~ 2 oz. myself. This is pretty strong, you may want to work
up to this much.

RE:   Sierra Nevada Pale Ale

I had my first one on a San Francisco park lawn (more than the legal 15'
from the street, as required by City law (when Miss? D. Fienstein was mayor,
and should have stayed there (for she is now Senator and would-be Ms Rosa
Luxemburg in absentia) outside a market near that giant [ugly] pyramid
building north (toward the Ferry Terminal, anyway) of the Saint Francis
Hotel, in 1976.  It tastes the very same today -- better than anything then
available THEN excepting Anchor, but woefully artificial tasting -- too much
water conditioning salts &c.  Despite being around for  25 years, it is no
wonder that, tasting exactly the same, it is not considered any sort of
'wonderkind'.  Fritz Maytag's Anchor Liberty Ale is just as old, but it is
superior.  (In fairness, these American & British 'real' ales used to taste
much better on draught than bottled.)  Sierra Nevada is an ale with
oh-too-much by-the-book filtration in my book.  Anybody feel similarly ?
