So as many have said on the forum, secondary isn't necessary. So I threw the dry hops right on in and after about a week. I'm ready to bottle! Is there tips or tricks to make sure you don't get the hops? I don't have access to cold crashing.
Thanks!

Cold crashing wont do much for the hops anyways. I had the same problem when I dry hopped for the first time. What you can do for now is get some cheap nylons or cheese cloth and tie that to where you are moving the beer from.

Next time use the same nylon or cheese cloth to make a hop sack to get the oils from the hops without the broken down pieces in the bottles.

Anyways Happy Bottling and enjoy your brew!

Thanks man! This past week I figured out I shoulda used some sort of seeping bag
Would a coffee filter tied to the end of my auto siphon work?

That probably won't work too well... it will get clogged quickly. A clean cloth like T-shirt material will work good.

no need for the seeping bag.....toss it right in, where ready to bottle siphon it from primary to the bottling bucket and then bottle from there.

A hops bag does help keep the vegetative material from dispersing into the beer, but be careful, too small a bag won't allow for a maximum surface area ratio, thereby limiting the hops flavor and aroma.

I use(d) an old stocking that I cut the end off and soak in sanitizer with an elastic band. Tie this to the end of your siphon and siphon into your bottling bucket. Works a treat.

I use a gallon sized paint strainer bag tied to the end of my siphon. Works great and cheap @ hardware store.
