Title: Kegging With Homegrown Hops
Post by: mr_jeffers on August 27, 2011, 11:17:55 AM
'Tis the season, and I've got a healthy bine of Cascade and Chinook hops to pick from.  I've also got a rye pale ale I'll be kegging in a few days, and was thinking of trying to dry hop it in the keg.  I've got a few questions though.

1) From what I've read, the ratio of dry to wet hop weight is around 1oz dry = 4oz wet.  Sound about right?

2) Is it ok to put the cones in the hop sock whole, or will I get better results if I break them up a bit?  Any other suggestions for prepping the hops for their duty?


Thanks!
Jeff

A 5 to one is the accepted ratio.  Just put the hops in the sock.
