I dry hop in nylon paint strainer bags and dunk them in starsan before dry hopping. I shake off the excess, let it drip dry for a couple minutes, add the hops and let 'er rip. No worries.
Hey, thanks! I have StarSan so that's the route I will go. Where do you get those strainer bags you mentioned? Lowe's, Home depot or a dedicated paint store? Also, will the muslin bag work as well?
Any hardware store has them, including Lowe's, Home Depot, etc.. I like them much better than muslin because they retain the vast majority of hop matter, where muslin lets quite a bit through.
Edit - I get the 5 gallon strainer bags and use a zip tie around the top, to give the hops lots of room to expand. dissolve and circulate their goodness.
