I just picked up a carbonation lid last week and am thinking about pulling the trigger on one of these to add to my array of kegging equipment lol. Just waiting to hear someones feedback on it. I feel like I would want to move the beer from that keg to another or pull the hopper out for serving. I use a randall full time at work and constantly taste the grassy, vegetative flavors from setting on hole hops for too long. Perhaps I am wrong and leaving it in there for say a month would not impart any off flavors, I would love to find out!

Yeah as I said I am most concerned about the time it sits in there. It takes me a month minimum to kick a keg.

As far as carbonating on the hops. If anything, I think it would help. Heck on Top Chef this season there was an episode where they pressurized a container to infuse flavor into their food. I honestly can't recall what they made but they certainly used that method to infuse more flavor.

I just got mine. My plan with it is I'm going to dry hop in the keg for 3-5days then jumper it off in to a new keg.

How much hops can go in at a time? So judging by the picture, pellet hops are not a problem?

Thats what I was thinking. I would rather buy more kegs than carboys to use for secondary. I dont want my beer on the hops for my than 5 days and if I drink that much beer at my house there is a problem hahaha.

Why? Seems like extra work. Why not just pull the dry hop basket out of the current keg?

Its not to hard to do, I mainly want to avoid any oxidation issues.

if you are dry hopping at cold temps you won't get too much extraction from the dry hops in just 3-5 days time

I've left several ounces dryhops in contact with the beer for a couple months before with no off flavors, in fact even the last little sputter out of keg still smelled amazingly potent

As long as you purge the tank with Co2 I think you should be ok.
