Default Particles after dry hopping

I heavily dry hopped an IPA in the keg and am carbonating now. I only have three days to carbonate and bottle, and so far there are tiny (finer than sand) hop particles throughout the beer that are making the beer super cloudy and more importantly giving the beer a terrible flavor, as if you just ate the raw hops. Will this settle out in the bottles? What can you suggest I do?!

Why the rush?

If you give it time in a cold place the hopparticles will drop out in the bottle or the keg. The taste also might just be from the CO2 that you are using to force carb it with. Probably not the hop particles.

Damn. That sucks. Is there a way around this for next time I dry hop?

If you have a second keg, you could crash the keg for 24 hours which should at least drop the hops, rack to the second keg, then do a "shake 'n' bake" carb (set your CO2 pressure using a carb chart like this one on the keg and rock it until you don't hear any more gas entering the keg) then bottle.

It'll be tight (two days remaining?) but you may be able to pull it off.

Next time, dry hop in your fermenter, then crash cool it for 48 hours to drop all the hops, yeast and any trubby stuff hard to the bottom, and rack off to your keg...

Cheers!

i've been using gelatin for months now following this process:

http://www.bertusbrewery.com/2012/06...h-gelatin.html

when i started kegging I either added the gelatin to an already cold crashed carboy, 24 after cold crashing i added gelatin. Or I added gelatin when kegging. The batches have all been coming out commercial grade clear. I'd suggest trying it after the beer has been cold 24 hours, it will work wonders and give no off flavors IMO.
