I've never dry hopped in a corny keg before. I purchased a dry hopper with a 300 micron screen.
1. How do you tie the dry hopper so it floats? I've heard satin dental floss works well? 2. After I rack and add the dry hops I'm assuming I pressurize the keg. How much pressure do I add?

  • Why do you think the dry hopper device need to float? Any monofilament will do - fishing line is one common/cheap example. Pasteurise in boiled water before use - not critical but can help! Sep 13 '17 at 12:36
  1. I use monofilament and tie to the diptube. But I use muslin bags

  2. as much as you normally do

  • What's your process for removing the dry hops after the time period has elapsed (5 - 7 days most likely)?

    I don't remove them. They stay in until the keg kicks 2-3 months down the road. I've never found any reason to remove them.
