That said, the hops you want to use in a keg need to be leaf only, pellets in a keg will turn the beer hazy green and give out grassy notes right away. I simply put the hops in a paint strainer bag and let them float on the top of beer till the keg is gone.
I use pellets all the time in a muslin bag in my kegs. Never any problems with hazy beer after the first few days. I have also let them go for way over a month with no negative effects that I can taste. It definitely seems to take more time to extract the hop flavor and aroma when they are cold though.

Don't be afraid to dry hop it again if you want to 'tune' it up. My experience wit a grassy flavor is that you need to go way over to get that. Also, dry hop flavors dissipate pretty quickly...

I don't either, but I usually dry hop with Centennial leaf almost exclusively. Just figured I'd throw the grassy thing out there since I've read others complain about it.

I've used pellets a couple times, and never gotten the green haze either. Though something just feels better about pulling leaf out of the keg.

Sorry to get off the real topic of this thread but since everyone is this thread has been so helpful - I have another question in regards to a yeast starter...

If I need to take the question somewhere else, please let me know...

I am brewing another 5.5 gallon batch with a SG of 1.080 & fear that my yeast may not be large enough.. (Denny Conn's Vanilla Bourbon Porter)

I have made a 1L starter with Wyeast 1056 last night and it is on my DIY stir plate.

After researching some more - it appears that I really needed 2L...

My question is - after 24 hours on my stir plate, can I add the 1L with yeast to a an additional 1L of DME into a 2L container & continue stirring?

I don't intend to chill/decant the original 1L.. Just want to double it's size.

Is it worth the trouble? Based on everyone's experience - would a 1L starter be up to task?

The other issue is my DIY stir plate does not pull a vortex all the way down to the stir bar, only about 25% of the way. I know this isn't as effective as strong vortex but has to be more efficient than a static yeast starter or one that is shaken occasionally, right?

I intend to get the issue fixed eventually. I think it has more to do with my bar than the plate. I may end up just buying one from stirplates.com if need be. Mine seems to be hit or miss. Obviously.

Thanks-

You can use Biscuit, Victory or Toasted.

I ended up racking to a keg @ 19 days. Added the hops in a strainer bag along with corn sugar...

Going to try and naturally condition while dry hopping in the keg... Thinking 2 weeks.

This isn't a corny keg. It is a 1/4 sanke pony keg.

Thoughts?

How you gonna get the hops into a sanke keg?

Better yet, how you gonna get them out?

They went in fairly easily believe it or not....

Getting them out remains to be seen.... Coat hanger?

I used my 7.5 gallon sanke because I had 6.5 gallons in my carboy. Obviously all would not fin in my corny. Had meant to bottle but didn't feel like messing with it.
