I have access to some very cheesy hops. Are they used mainly for sours or can they be used in dubbels and quads? Are they used for bittering, aroma or both? What amount would be a good start to try? If you don't get around to answering my question be prepared to answer it to a drunk at BN5. You guys rock! Brew Strong.

What the hell. I thought I was sending in a question not posting a comment. I'll have to try again.

Anoother way to fill a keg by Mac, January 07, 2011
There was a mention of using a closed transfer method. I don't trust myself enough to force transfer from my glass carboy with presurized gaz, so what I do is just attach an 'out' keg fitting to the end of my auto-syphon. Then I just connect the auto syphon to the out port of the keg, engage the pressure release valve, drop the auto-syphon in the carboy using a drilled-out and cut bong that fits around the auto-syphon to adjust the depth, prime it, and voila!

Not exactly closed system because obviously air will get sucked into the carboy, but a great lazy way because all you need to do is check up on it and adjust the syphon depth.

Love the shows!
