I just went to remove my 1st charge of dry hops from a keg & lo & behold, they are not floating on top like they usually are. I just put the whole hops in a bag before racking & seal up the keg. I am presuming that the cord or bag is somehow caught on the dip tube, but not really sure how to proceed. I don;t want to leave the hops in there for the next month or so until it is consumed.
I dryhop in the keg all the time, but I don't fish them out. I just leave the bag (or the "teaball" type of container) in there until the keg is done. I do this at fridge temps, and not room temperature. I usually finish a keg in 3 weeks, and I have had great results with doing that. Just something to consider!
