So, I know that the whole secondary vs not secondary question has been done to death on here but...
I have an IPA that is ready for dry hops. I want to use the yeast cake for a barley wine.
1) Go ahead and add loose hops (Whole) to the primary and not worry about it as I am planning on wash or rinse (Which ever one does not involve acid) the yeast anyway
2) add hops to the primary in a hop sack
3) rack to secondary on top of hops. I have a 5 gallon carboy so there won't be a lot of headspace but I don't have CO2 to purge the carboy.
what to do?
