My first 5 gallon batch is about ready for its dry hop addition and I wanted to get a feel for the methods used by others on this forum. I have read many different ways to do it, such as use a muslin bag or even add the pellets directly to the fermenter and just let them naturally sink to the bottom. A little background on what I have brewing. It is a West Coast IPA extract kit and the hop addition will be 1oz of Idaho 7 hop pellets. It has been in my conical fermenter for almost 2 weeks, and about 5 days ago I dumped the trub. So far I have hit all the SG marks, so fingers crossed this is a successful batch. Currently I am looking at two options for my dry hop: Place the pellets inside of a brew bag/sock that has, of course, been sanitized in StarSan and then insert it into my fermenter through my 1.5" TC port Dump the pellets directly into my fermenter through the TC port and see what happens Welcome any thoughts/opinions! Thanks!
