I dry hopped into a pressurized fermenter last week. It was at 25 psi but I lowered it during a couple of hours by turning down my SPUNDit until I got to around 10. I then released the final 10, opened the torpedo keg and dropped in the hops. I purged afterwards. No problem.

I did have a fair amount of headspace though as my Torpedo is 10G.

Maybe I did it too fast. As I said earlier this was def my fault. Hence the swearing.

Despite it going against everything I stand for I could almost be convinced to jumper these beers to new kegs after 2-3 days. Even after 24 hours the hop level is pretty nice. I wonder if I could just clean one more keg, jump a beer, remove hop tube and then jumper the other keg into that.... :scratch:

one keg is clean and sanitized... I might do my jumping plan

 

keg 1 -> keg 3

remove hop tube from keg 1

keg 2 -> keg 1 (no cleaning!)

 

clean keg 2 and hop tubes

 

not too bad.  using some more CO2 but otherwise not that much more work.

So right now there is still some hop debris in the kegs so I'm not getting a complete picture yet but there is hope for good stuff.
