but I have 3 pounds of whole leaf in the freezer. Also I should have mentioned that I bottle not keg so I don't have the cool trickery of you keggers.
I bottle too. Cheers!
When dealing with whole leaf hops, I do one of two things:
1) If the beer went into a bucket for primary I fill up a sanitized nylon sack with hops and a weight, then gently drop it into the beer (after fermentation's complete).
2) If the beer went into a carboy for primary I dump the leaf hops into a sanitized 5 gal carboy, then rack the beer onto them.
I've never worried about rousing. But that's just me.
