What technique do you use to dry hop in a carboy. I'm concerned about retreaving the bag with the hops in it. Just wondering if anyone had some tips to suspending/or sinking the bag of hops.
Was thinking about putting a couple marbles in the bag, sanitized of course, and the tying one end in a knot and doubling up some sewing thread that's been boiled in water around the sack and up through the opening. Putting the airlock back on and suspending the sack in the middle of the beer.
Is this to much work? Should I just put the sack in and syphon the beer out and then get the sack of hops afterwards?
