one more whole hop fan who never bags hops. I have a false bottom in my kettle and when I dry hop I simply let them be, racking is as simple as using a short piece of string to tie a hop sock around my racking cane. As far as storage goes I vacuum seal hops and freeze them. I guess I don't get what all the nightmares are about, the only clogging problems I've had have been with pellets. anyway, cheers to whatever works in your system.
