I put an open gas fitting onto the gas post of the receiving keg. No pressure buildup. But my plate filter leaked like a sieve. I need to do some water testing before I run beer through it again.

Do you dry hop before or after filtering?

My experience was that filtering that finely removed significant hop character.

Your experience the same?

I tried dry hopping after the fine filtration, and it was good beer, but not the same (not as hoppy) as not filtering and then dry hopping.

I dry hopped before I filtered. It does seem to have less hop aroma, I was thinking maybe it was the fresh hops vs the pellets. I'm dry hopping it again with some more fresh hops in a fine mesh bag in the keg now.
