Does anyone have any experience using whole-cone hops directly in the LBK?

Recommended Posts

So, I have some experimental whole-cone hops I am going to make a SMaSH-type beer with, just using a known, clean-bittering hop for the main charge & using the unknown-AA% hops as flavour, aroma, whirlpool, and dry-hops. I will strain the boiled & whirlpool hops out before the wort is poured into the LBK, but I plan on using an entire ounce for the dry-hop, and while I am a "hops go commando"-type of guy, I am thinking a hop-sack might be best for whole-cone hops as if there are any commando floaters, it might clog the spigot, and if they all sink, they are definitely gonna clog up the spigot.

 

Does anyone here have any experience dry-hopping in the LBK with whole-cone hops? If so, care to share your experience?

Didn't dry hop but used them in a boil(20 min and 5 min).  Use a couple/three glass marbles to help the sack sink.  They soak up a lot of wort.
