Yesterday I kegged my Pliny clone. It tastes and smells incredible. I did the first round of dry hopping in the secondary buckets with whole, loose hops. The final dry hop addition will be done in the kegs. I zip tied a hop sock over the intake of the sipon tube to keep the hops out of the keg. I was very frustrated to experience lots of tiny bubbles in the siphon tube that I wasn't able to choke out. It seemed to start out OK but build gradually and then got rediculous particularly in the second keg. Is this from the hop sock and/or the resulting flow restriction?
All I know is that i much prefer the idea of using whole loose hops to socks when I can. However, I certainly don't wan't to ruin a flippin delicious batch of beer by oxygenating it. Anybody else experience this issue or have a better method that does not produce the blasted tiny bubbles?
