Excellent, i have about 1/2 an ounce of some Tettnanger left over from a Hefe we did last month. Think that will work?

I dry hopped my SNPA clone with pellet hops. I should have put them into secondary and then siphoned onto them but I forgot. Anyway, I just looked at it an it looks like there's a second krausen on it, but I'm pretty sure its hop bits floating on the surface.

I just did this. Put them in before you syphon. I used a 5 gal carboy and had to put a blow off tube on it.

Pellet hop debris is pretty fine. Is there any significant advantage to putting them into a hop bag before siphoning the beer from the primary on top of them?
