I have a Pale Ale that has been dry-hopping for a while (2weeks) and looking to bottle this weekend. still have hop pellets floating on the top and slowly sinking. i don't have the option of cold-crashing (it was -14F this morning and a high of 9F expected for the week.)

i have an auto-siphon, but am wondering if anyone has a filtering technique for the end of the tube. i don't want to oxidize the beer so the filter would have to be inside the carboy.

Any thoughts?

I would just rack it into a clean carboy. Get it off those hops and allow things to settle out a bit. I wouldn't leave it on dry hops for a third week.

You can put a hop sock/painter strainer bag over the end of you syphon. Worked ok for me.

+1. I always put the end of my racking cane in a paint strainer bag (the nylon kind, buy 'em at home depot.) Secure it with a rubber band. Keeps the trub out of my bottling bucket, but plenty of yeast passes through to carb in the bottle.

It's below zero and you have no way to cold crash? Does not compute. I mean, I understand you'd be concerned about freezing the beer but even leaving it out on the porch for 2 hours to get it cold would help. Set a timer so you don't forget though.

i thought it would freeze before everything drops. so rather than moving it constantly in and out of the houseit would be better to filter it. moving could potentialy disturb the trub.

NAh, throw it in a snow bank and keep an eye on it. Stuff will start to fall out as soon as the temps drop.
