never done it before untill this weekend...
a few questions, after the fact...
do you guys just toss the hops in the secondary, or do you put em in a baggy?
i didn't have a baggy, and just tossed the whole hops and about half an oz of pellets into the big barley wine we brewed on 1/1/6... they made a nice mess and caused it to foam up a bit. i helped it along by shaking the jug a bit. they collected at the top for a few days and are now starting to sink to the bottom.
do i need to rack it a third time whilst aging it, or should i just leave em in there?
i'm leaning towards leaving them in there, i don't see any harm coming from it, but i'll defer to more experienced advice in the dry hopping.
