Dry hopping with pellets

(1/3) > >>

uisgue:
I have never dry-hopped with pellets. Is there anything in particular that I should be aware of? How about keg-hopping? 

k4df4l:
The big thing I've found in the past when dry hopping with pellets is that I have to use some kind of filtering medium on my autosiphon when transferring out to keep all the small hop particles from coming along for the ride.

dhacker:
I've used knee-high stockings (preferably white) with great success. They will stretch as the pellets swell and still have a tight enough weave to contain the majority of the residue.

I have, for the most part, moved to whole hops for dry hopping, but pellets work just fine.

Hi Doug,

I just put the pellets in the fermenter and rack the beer onto them.  After a week or 2, they drop out, making it easy to bottle or keg the beer.

Just be careful not to agitate them when racking into the bottling bucket.
