Just racked my lager to secondary before and chucked in some hops with it. Then I had a thought. Is it bad if I leave the hops in there for too long? The hops aren't in a bag so I cant get them out and I want to let the beer clear for 2 weeks. Is 2 weeks too long to dry hop?
Belgian wheat lager
Nothing left to drink

Nope that works. You dont want to go much longer past that though, the beer will get a grassy flavor

Two weeks is ok, a month is too much.
