Kegging from dry-hopped secondary
« on: April 01, 2011, 08:22:47 AM »
Hey guys, as you may know, I'm getting back into homebrewing after a few years off, so it's been a few years since I've kegged a beer.

I currently have my latest batch (IPA) in the secondary fermenters, still at 68 degrees and dry-hopped in the secondary.  I'm planning to move the fermenters into my fridge tonight, to help everything settle out before I keg.

Does anyone see a problem with kegging the beer directly from the secondary fermenters (i.e. W/ the dry-hop hops still in the secondary)?  I think I'll be OK, and any very minor hop particles I may get should settle out & be tapped off w/ the first beer out of the keg wouldn't you think? 

I'm probaby fine & just being paranoid.

Shouldn't be a problem.

OK.  Thanks.  Didn't think so.  I guess I just need to relax, not worry and have a beer!  :D
