I'm tired of losing so much beer when I dry hop with whole leaf. Also, the last half gallon usually is a PITA to siphon through all those hops. I thought I could solve the problem, so here is what I did:
I stuffed two ounces of leaf hops in a regular size grain/hop muslin bag, along with a shot glass (bag and shot glass were boiled to sanitize). I thought the weight of the shot glass would push the "hop balloon" to the bottom, but it did no such thing. The damn thing is still floating, with half the hop bag above the beer. Any suggestions on how to make this "hop boat" sink the next time I try it???
