I recently brewed an extract kit from morebeer, its the Rogue I2PA. It uses 1oz of magnum for bittering at 60min, 1oz of cascade for flavoring at 30min, 1oz of willamette for aroma at 15min and was dry hopped with 1oz of Amarillo.

My question is can I keg hop it to get some more hoppiness/aroma and what hop would you suggest I use to compliment the others in the recipe and in what quantity? I'm a hop head so the more hop character the better.

Any help/suggestions greatly appreciated!

Cheers!

I use Corney kegs to dry hop all of the time. I prefer to use whole hops loose in the keg. I have modified my kegs with a Surscreen device which is a stainless steel mesh screen that slips over the pickup tube. It costs around $8 and works better than other methods to impart hop flavor.
