your probably going to need a filter or cold crash after dry hopping or both, but I choose to condition in a keg for 7 days to settle everything to the bottom then transfer to serving keg and slow carb. this will seem very strong at first but will come together after 15 days of aging

this does not taste like LIL Helper at all but it is very good, I might rename it lol
