I'm probably not going about this correctly.Why?
If the beer is at equilibrium and you drop the pressure while at the same time agitating the beer you can expect quite a lot of foaming.
I am trying to clear the beer up as much as possible and also trying to make sure all the hops drop out to the bottom so transfer is as easy as possible.
My thought is to have more pressure in the sight glass than the fermenter, so when i open the butterfly valve the super kleer doesn't shoot up into my manifold.
I would only rock the fermenter gently because it says to gently stir up the super kleer, but in order to actually stir it up with a tool I'd have to open up the fermenter and I'd rather not do that.
Another option that is probably a lot easier, is to dry hop in the spike flex+ at 70 for 2 days under 10 PSI, cold crash at 36 for 2 days at 10 PSI.
Then transfer the beer into the keg. I'm just not sure if this will impart any grassy flavors from the cold temps
