So, I just recently kegged a batch of denny’s fabulous rye ipa. I dry hopped inside the keg using pellet hops inside one of those stainless steel tea infuser balls. I’ve used this method before without incident, and the resulting hop aroma was spectacular.
I’m not sure if the clasp on the tea ball came loose, or just enough particles got through the screen to cause me problems, or what, but I tried to sample it for the first time last night and - nothing. I depressurized and pulled the dip tube to find it clogged with hops. I cleaned it out and tried again only to have it immediately clog again. At this point I gave up. It was late, my brother was over, and we wanted beer so I moved on to something else.
Anyway, I want to take another crack at it tonight. Any ideas for how to rescue this beer?
