I have a few bags that when I need them, I soak them in pbw for a few minutes, rinse 5 times with fresh water, then spray with my spray bottle of starsan. Put the hops in, pull the ties closed, then place in the keg and re-purge the headspace.How can I sterilize the bag or hops? I read that the hops do not need sterilizing but I am assuming the bag will.
I either do this or use a clear beer draught system that is basically a float that takes beer from the top only. Its a little pricey ($40ish) but it cleans up easier than anything else and you can serve from the keg even if it is lying down which is nice for a keg/cooler setup.I put a screen on the out tube and throw whole cone hops in every keg.
