For what it's worth over the years I've used various hop bags and containers to dry hop in kegs, including log 2' dry hop cylinders like this: http://www.theelectricbrewery.com/Stainless-Steel-Dry-Hopper-for-Kegs


I find the hops clump up too much, resulting in poor extraction, even if you give the keg a little rock a few times/day. The movement doesn't work well as the hops are too clumped together. Especially true with bags where the only wort <-> hop movement is on the outside. Much better to let the hops roam free as they'll float on top. Like so:

Then give the keg or vessel a little rock a few times a day and they'll sink a bit and float around a lot, getting great contact and extraction. (If using something clear like this, make sure to cover it up normally to avoid light exposure).

When it's time to rack to the keg I don't use any sort of filter as it just gets clogged. So some hop bits get into the keg which isn't a big deal as they're stopped by my Hop Stopper 2.0 Keg Edition filters: https://shop.theelectricbrewery.com/collections/hop-stopper

They go on the end of the keg racking cane and look like this:

Thanks Kal! Yea, I'm planning on picking up a few of those!

My only concern with those is that if you close transfer into the keg, any debris would be trapped inside of this filter rather then outside. These are really only for use with open keg transfers rather then filling through the liquid post, correct?

That's my plan for my first attempt. Do you use any type of hop bag/container or do you just dry hop directly into the wort? I am rocking a big ol' conical so i figure everything will settle for me to rack off of anyhow, not really requiring a container


No I just put it all straight in the fermenter no bags / filters etc. Cold crash for 2 - 3 days and straight to the keg.

See the FAQ on the order page: https://shop.theelectricbrewery.com/collections/hop-stopper/products/hop-stopper-2-0-keg-edition-1-pack

Specifically the section "I FILL MY KEGS THROUGH THE LIQUID OUT DIP TUBE. CAN I STILL DO THAT IF THE HOP STOPPER KEG EDITION IS ATTACHED TO THE DIP TUBE?"

Ingredients: just getting my shopping list together to order.

In the UK, I have 2 choices of Maris Otter, Extra Pale at EBC. 3 or regular at EBC. 6. Any preference?

Also cannot get hold of Australian Galaxy at present. Apparently Centennial is a good substitute. I can get the BBC Centennial which is supposed to be better for dry hopping. Anyone used this hop with this recipe?

Cheers

The one I use is 'regular' Maris Otter that is closer to EBC 6 or around 3L.

I've not found them that similar.

Centennial: This balanced bittering and aromatic hop has a decidedly American nature with a uniquely pungent flavor. An intense citrus aroma with pronounced lemon notes also gives off some floral qualities that blend well with IPAs, APAs, and Pale Ales. Centennial is sometimes referenced to as a super charged Cascade without the grapefruit flavors of Cascade. Centennial also blends well with Chinook and Columbus hops.

Galaxy: Gentle citrus with passion fruit notes, along with a high alpha acid level. Similar to Citra, but with the tropical fruit toned down and a bit more grassy flavour. While traditionally an Australian hop, the New Zealand variety is very similar.

Both will of course work.

Keep in mind that it's completely up to you how you sub out ingredients as anything will work - it's a matter of personal preference. Good luck!

Kal

Just checking the water profile for brew day.

The NEIPA recipe calls for mg at 10, while the Water Adjustment Guide says mg at 18

Which figure should I use

Cheers

Good catch! Thanks for catching that. The recipe should say Mg=18, not Mg=10. I've fixed it now. That said, that extremely minor difference will never be noticeable in the finished product.

Hello Kal,
Looking to brew this beer. Looks solid. Sorry if my question has already been answered but the pictures in the beginning of the thread shows containers for steeping at 160degrees while the recipe shows 180degrees. Assuming this wasn't a typo and that you've actually done this a multiple temps in your experimentation, can you please elaborate on why you went with 180 in your final recipe? What were your perceptions of the differences in steeping at 160 vs 180? Thanks!

I enjoyed the hop presence better! Try both and decide for yourself which you prefer. Cheers!

Brewing this one again today... it's a popular one!

Set and forget!
