3 oz pellets added directly to secondary, as I have done before. Only this time, in just one day all the hop marterial has sunk right to the bottom instead of remaining at the surface.
I am keeping the secondary at 55 deg. and the primary ferment did go for a full 4 weeks, so my assumption is that there is very little CO2 in solution and the slightly cooler temp allowed the hops to sink.
I guess there is no less surface contact with the beer at the bottom than at the top of the carboy, so it probably does not matter. I have been giving it the occasional gentle swirl (it’s stoppered tight with no airlock) to agitate the hops back up.
Any issues with this that I am not thinking of?
