We are going to brew a Maibock next weekend and would like to substitute the whirlpool with a a metallic tea bag that holds the hops (pellets) while boiling.
We tried a smaller metallic tea bag with boiling water and the finest parts of the hops mixed well, while the thickest parts were retained inside the tea bag.
Before the fermentation keg we have another filter in place anyways.
- Is this a good/bad bad idea?
- Did someone already try this and can share their experience?
