MMMM. Dry hopping is good. Easy dry hopping is better.

Great Idea I've been thinking of how to DIY one of these for the past couple months, Thanks now I can stop thinking about it and dry hop with it!
Tell me about it. I come up with things I would like to do but money is always a key factor to getting it rolling.

We need some pronto! I've used it and it worked great but that doesn't mean much coming from the seller.

Yes, very very easy! I love how it skips a step and you can start carbing your beer even quicker.

I'm playing around with one on a 10.5% IPA with 6.75oz of dry hops dosed over 4 additions. Should be as good of test as any. So far so good.

How long can you keep the dry hops in there before the off flavors come into play?

How much beer does this displace? I know hop amounts will vary, but I'm talking about the bare unit. Just wondering if you could put something like this in a keg that's filled with 5 gallons without it spilling over.

It doesn't displace much, but if you have a keg filled to the top, it's obviously going to spill over. 4-6oz maybe?

Are you carbing and dry hopping at the same time?

with the keg cold in the keezer, I've had hops in the keg the entire time until it was kicked....of course that's with a hanging bag that the beer level would have eventually gotten under....but still, as long as the beer is cold, I think you can leave them in there a long time

I've actually only had the chance to use it once so far. It's a brand new setup we've been working on since late last year after a customer asking for one and just launched it a few weeks ago.

The corny I was using had plenty of space with 5 gallons of beer in it. I used whole and pellet while testing it out with no problems.

That's what I did. I'm honestly not too sure what negative effects it might cause but I do have some great aromas in my IIPA! If anyone knows some more info. on this, please share.
