I put a beer on the CO2 a few days ago, but I am not satisfied with the amount of dry hopping I did in secondary. Has anyone added a sanitized hop bag after they have had the beer on tap for a few days? Other than releasing the gas and sanitizing the hop bag, is there anything I should be aware of?

Thanks!

If it is carbonated you may want to watch out for foaming and be prepared to wait for it to fully carb again.

I'v never dry hoped a carbonated beer but i would think it would cause some foaming.

When I re-hop, I always de-pressurize for a week at room temperature by pulling the relief valve and rotating the ring, so it stays open.
