Dry hopping. Chux. How long ?


Recommended Posts

G'day all, got a dry hopping question.

I normally just chuck em in, but sometimes the siphon hose blocks a little or blocks completely (only happened once) or works fine. (I put most of my brews into kegs.)

This time i tried wrapping them in a chux cloth and they were in there for three days before kegging. I only fermented this one for seven days.

I tasted the FG sample and it wasn't as hoppy as i thought.

I took out the hops in the cloth and smelt it and it smelt great, too great!

Question is, should i have dry hopped for longer or does wrapping the hops in a cloth "restrict" the full flavour of the hops??

Cheers, Brendan.
