I have been using polyester voile dry hop bags for a while now. Same polyester voile as the BIAB bags I make. These bags seem to work well for dry hopping in kegs or fermenters. Very simple hop sock design that is closed by simply knotting the sock shut. Bags are large, approximately 5" X 25" and should hold plenty for even the extreme hop junkies out there!

Durable material and stitching that should last many batches. Priced at 2 for $10 shipped.


Thank you,

Mine came in a couple of days ago, but I have been on a business trip, so I just got to open the package today.

Bigger than I expected for a dry-hop bag. You could easily fit 4 oz of pellets in one bag if you wanted to.

I will be trying mine out very soon as I am brewing a Rye IPA this weekend.

Yes agreed, they are nice and large. As the story goes, I recently purchased a stainless mesh tube approx 1" X 15" for dry hopping, on my first use the pellet hops swelled up and packed the tube like concrete, making a challenging 15 minute job to dig the hops out of the tube with a long screwdriver. Conclusion being that extra room is a good thing for hop pellets.

Also, the additional length of bag is provided to knot the bag closed. The bags can also be cut to size as desired w/ scissors, then a gentle sealing of the cut edge with a lighter, poly fabric can be edge seam sealed w/ heat to prevent fraying very simply.

Cheers and Happy brewing!

I use them either in primary or the keg, as that is all I do with two vessels. You can certainly dry hop in the primary, I have heard that it is best to wait for the yeast to drop and the beer be clear. I have heard that suspended yeast will bind with with the hop flavors and aromas and settle to the bottom of the tank, therefore dry hopping is best AFTER the majority of the yeast has settled, wherever you choose to dry hop.

Cool I might check these out.

Ya I used to dry hop in secondary then in the keg but lately I've been just throwing a handful in as my primary subsides. I haven't put a beer in secondary in 7 years or so. It's been a great little time saver with same results.

I like my beers hazy, yeasty and looking & tasting nothing like a commercial brew - but that's just me
