So this is my 3rd batch. It is a Belgian Imperial IPA. I'm just looking for 'best practices' info on dry hopping. I have the beer in a 6 gallon better bottle and it has reached final gravity. It is currently sitting on the yeast cake and it is 9 days since I pitched the yeast.
I'm thinking about just popping the top off of the carboy and dumping the loose pellets in (3-4 oz), because getting a bag back out may be a problem, sanitizing the bag, the extra oxygen that would go in with the bag, etc.
Any problems associated with this method? I will not reuse the yeast.
