I use pellet hops so I put them in a sanitized hop bag, throw the bag in the keg and seal it up.  It's amazing to taste the evolution of the beer over the life of the keg.  I've read that this makes the beer taste grassy after a while but I've never experienced that at all.

Using your method with the pellet hops, do you get hop resin when you pour a beer?  Only because I've been conditioning this beer for the past week and it's now bright and clear.

I've never seen any hint of hop resin or any other visible evidence of the hops in the keg.

I'd really just rather be brewing in sunny Carlsbad New Mexico

Just what I needed to know...Thanks
