So I made a DIPA that was dry hopped, I chose to dry hop in the secondary and let it sit for 2 weeks there rather than in the keg, I only had pellets and I forgot to put them in a bag.. So.. smart me, I then put gelatin in the secondary after 2 weeks, wait three days and think.. ok time to keg.
That was 2 months ago. now here I am tapping the keg, and nothing... no beer comes out, I quickly find out that my dip tube and spring are clogged with hops (I thought I left them in the secondary).. so I release the gas, pull the drip tube, clean it out, put the keg back together, attach the gas (@20psi) attached a picnic tap and I get like a tablespoon of beer and it clogs.. I have done this 11 times tonight.. each time I remove what seems like a little less than a pellet of hops.
So.. any ideas here, I am thinking of just getting the racking cane and putting our everything but the last two inches into a another keg.. I know next time.. mesh bags for dry hop and bags, but what should I do about there here and now? If someone has an idea, I am listening...
