Trouble in Paradise

Had a little snafu this evening as far as the dry hopped keg of Hopsloitation goes.  The keg line must have gotten clogged by the hops in the keg and the flow of beer was stopped.  Terrible, I know.

In order to troubleshoot this problem I took the CO2 gas line and plug it into the out line (liquid line) and blasted it with CO2 for a minute.  Foam erupted out of the "in" line, but it was easy enough to clean up.

At least temporarily this seems to have remove the blockage and restored the flow of brew.

Keep the kegs flowing,

Put the hops in a sanitized hop bag and you won't have that problem.

Actually I put the hops in a muslin bag. I realize the picture in this post is misleading. I suspect the bag itself may have gotten caught in the liquid out tube.

Nonetheless, Thanks for the tip.
