Good evening gents & lady-
Does anyone out there have a better idea for dry hopping a IPA in a 5 gallon glass carboy?
Here is my current setup: I place the hops (usually pellets) into a muslin bag filled with marbles. The weight of the marbles is supposed to sink the hops to the bottom. The problem that I face is when I try to remove the bag/hops/marbles from the carboy, it is a pain in the @$$. I know I can buy that screen thing from WB&H, but I dont want to spend $35 if I don't have to. Any ideas?
