"The only downside is that dry hopping while carbing means you're at serving temperatures instead of secondary temperatures, making it take much longer to impart the dryhop flavor."

I dropped a half ounce of amarillo into my corny keg and got some pretty good flavor after 2 hours. I weight the bag so it sits on the bottom of the keg and the beer is drawn through it on the way out, so I don't know how (or if) that helps the process.

I don't know how to close you are to Piscataway, but you can save some shipping charges at BrewHardware.com and pick up your order.

Like I said... I have never done it. I was just going off the logic of opening a bottle of beer and pouring it. Then if you stir up with, say, a spoon... you rouse the head. My thought was logical. I just happen to not have experienced opening a carbonated keg. I stand corrected. Now, get down off my back man.

Cheers.

Here is a pick of a Brewhardware.com sight glass and thermometer combo in my BK. I love them, I also have one in my HLT. I have dip tubes in both.

And here is my 1/2"x50' IC, I added legs so it sits above my dip tube. I also used 1/2" rigid with 90* bends so I wasn't trying to make the bends myself and kink it. Got that from Coppertubingsales.com as a kit.
