I made a Munich lager that is slightly under-hopped. Its not more bitterness that I want, it is that when I bring the glass up, I smell no hops. I have some cluster in the fridge, could I put this into the keg?

Usually any big chain grocery store has them. I use one and they really bring some aroma to your glass.

Guys, SWMBO got the tea ball @ Wally world today. I loaded it up and tossed it in. (sanitized of course) 4 hrs later the bland Munich Lager has been transformed into a well balanced brew with little hoppy goodness that tickles your nose. Great job guys! Thanks to all that participated!
