Default Dry hopping with pellets can get messy when you forget to tie the bag

Tossed the bag with Galaxy pellets in when I kegged and apparently I forgot to tie the end of the bag. Seems like the pellet gunk sank to the bottom of the keg where the dip tube is. The IPA was crystal clear when I kegged too Wonder how many pints I'm going to need to drink until it's clear again. Funny thing is, it's freaking GOOD. Tastes like Galaxy hop juice.

I thought that, but then I thought- "no, it looks like yeast juice!" It looks like a combo of some hops but mostly yeast (the light color). That should get better! Don't move the keg, and the sludge will settle and you'll have clear beer fairly soon, although probably with a little green tinge. Even the hops pellets will settle, although those buggers can clog your diptube and poppit sometimes.
