Cleaning Whole Hops from a Carboy
The green hopped California IPA I brewed was kegged recently. You may remember I was concerned about separating the hops cones from the beer. Well as usual I worried a bit too much about all that. I just shook the carboy and with a little help they all came out. I did lose some beer that was absorbed by the cones, but, it was worth it. Here are a few pictures of the carboy after the secondary was emptied.
