Need some advice. I dry hopped this keg and I ran out of hop bags to use (last one was too far gone to use) so I threw the hops right into the keg. I’ve never done that before that I can recall. Tapped last night and it won’t flow. Took it apart and the dip tube is clogged. I used a dip tube brush and cleaned it out but there are obviously a pile of hops down at the bottom of the keg so it still won’t flow. Only 1 ounce was used to dry hop.
I guess my options are rack to another keg or possible cut the dip tube a little short? Anyone cut those before? Was thinking I could mark this keg since I have 7 and just use this one for dry hopping then moving forward. I want to tap this tonight, it’s an all Chinook IPA I made and smells terrific from the dry hops. The hops have been in there 2 weeks while the brew has been carbonating. Thanks.
