I recently bled out a 20 lb cylinder of CO2 that was pretty freshly filled when I put a piece of dental floss through the keg lid to hold a bag of dry hops. So, I’m considering this stainless hop basket for dry hopping in the keg. http://www.stainlessbrewing.com/Dry-Hopper-with-twist-cap-_p_155.html
I know @kcbeersnob and a few others have posted positively about them. I’m curious about the volume of hops they’ll hold. I use only pellet hops and my biggest DH is probably 3 oz of pellets. Should I get the 18" one?
I’ve never noticed any ill effects from leaving my DH hops in the keg until it kicks so I’m thinking I’ll just drop the basket in and leave it for the duration as well. If I do that I see no nead for anchoring it to the keg lid. Anyone with experience and an opinion please chime in.
