Yeah. It wasnt until I attempted your wet dry hopping method yesterday that I realized how dumb of a question that was.

I dont know what i was thinking because there would be no way of bagging two ounces of hop sludge.

Im interested to see how this method turns out in a batch of Two Hearted. It smelled good right before I plopped it in to the fermenter.

Although, I suppose a person could bag the hops dry, steep them in the hot water, & then dump the whole mess into the fermenter if he/she is intent on bagging dry hops.

......seal the hops in a bag and put the sealed bag in the fermenter?

I mean a mesh hop sack or bag or whatever. Not "sealed".

Yeah, a hop bag might work. I bet frozen warm hopped hops might be mush after the boil, but who cares!

Need to try this.

I've been dry hopping in mesh bags because I was using whole hops and they don't like to sink. The mush from the warmed hop pellets sank after 5 days so no need when using this method with pellets. Just bottled the batch of Two Hearted clone. Smelled great! Love those Centennial!
