I made a 10 gallon batch of an all grain IPA. The total into the secondarys (two carboys) is a less than 10 gallons. I want to keg the beer not bottle. Both are dry hopped at this time. One carboy has less volume than the other.

Is it possible to equalize the dry hop by putting the two into one container prior to kegging? By putting all of the beer into one container, I could get a total volume and separate into kegs from there. Thoughts please.
I would rather be tried by twelve than carried by six.

As long as everything is sanatized I don't see a problem with it. Many sour brewers blend beer to get the right taste. As long as you have a container big enough (brewpot?).

It it fine to mix the two or more. This is exactly what happens in breweries when they have smaller mash or ferment tanks.
