Hello! just want to know if you guys are using the same procedure as I. When the beer finish primary fermentation i pass it to the secondary vessel (corny) and chill the green beer to 40's ºF for about two weeks, then i filter the beer with a 1 micron poly filter in order to remove suspended yeast that could interfer with hops flavor. Then i transfer the beer to a third vessel (another corny) with whole hops at a temperature of 60's ºF for about one week to perform dry hopping. Finally i transfer the dry hopped beer to a fourth keg, chill againg, force carbonate y serve.
Is that to messy? Can i skip an intermediate step like filtering? what do you commonly do?
