The recipe calls for dry hopping in the secondary, and I was afraid the pellets would expand and make it tough getting the bag out of the carboy neck, so I just dumped them in loose. Most of the residue settled to the bottom, with a gentle rocking every other day, but there is a slight scum of hops on the top. How wrong was it to do this, and how should I do it next time? It has been in the secondary for 7 days now. Thanks for your input.
