Lots of Hop fragments in beer?
I made the AG Haus Pale Ale from Bee Cave Brewery and decided to give dry hopping a try. I racked to a secondary on top of an oz of Cascade pellets. I didn't put them in a grain bag or anything and let them soak for around 10 days.
Last night I bottled. The aroma and flavor is really nice and one of the first good hoppy beers I have made to this point. But my last bottle didn't feel up all the way so I poured it in a glass to have a look and a sip or 5. It's here that I realized how many fragments were floating in the beer, kind of disappointing. They settle to the bottom but after every sip they swarm the glass again like a tornado. It's not a ridiculous amount but definitely noticeable.
I plan on drinking the beer as if there is nothing different about it. I'm not going to let a glass full of hop fragments stop me but I was curious to hear others opinions on what I currently have and the best way to fix it in the future.
