Default Caskarillo IIPA...dry hoppage

Racked the caskarillo into the secondary over an ounce of homegrown cascade and some amarillo beauties!

AWESOME. How did/will you bottle/keg while leaving all that plant material behind?

Also, is the Vodka for drinking? or are you using it for something?

I will need to very carefully rack from under the hop cap but above the yeast sediment at bottom. I know I will lose some brew due to hop absorbtion but thats the way it goes. The vodka is for drinking yes but I also use it in my airlock.

I would like to hear more about "preparing hops". I thought about this before dry hopping...about the hops being sanitary etc. Please enlighten me...

Thank you.

Mmm do you drink the vodka after its been in the airlock? Save that it doesn't leech any plastic, it might taste good. I know the smell I've gotten from my airlock has been pretty good before.

Haha. Yeah I am constantly smelling my airlock. Love that smell. I have tasted the vodka in the past but its been awhile. Maybe I will need to take a vodka hop shot after this is done...
