I've heard it before from plenty of experienced keggers and want to confirm this well known fact for any new brewers or non-keggers. I just started kegging last Monday and kegged 4 cornies on that initial day - 2xbrown ale and 2xhoppy red. The brown ales were prechilled and I put them onto the kegerator to carbonate right away. The hoppy reds were left in primary for 10 days at that point. I transferred 8 total gallons into the 2 cornies (4 gallons in each) and threw 1.5oz of dry hops into each keg. I then force carbonated (at room temperature) for 6 days while the dry hopping commenced. Today I hooked them up to the kegerator and chilled them down. I poured a glass, gave it a whiff, and immediately realized what kegging has done to up my hoppy beer game. It was by far the biggest hop nose I have ever gotten off of one of my homebrews. History repeated itself when I tasted the beer. Now I know dry hops just add nose, the beer still had the most pungent hop flavor I've tasted in one of my homebrews to date. My conclusions is that (correct me if I'm wrong please) not only has kegging afforded me the chance to drink my beer while it continues to dry hop, it has afforded me the opportunity to drink dry hopped and fully carbonated beer a mere 16 days after brewing it! So I attribute the increased flavor to the fact that the hops that originally went into the kettle had only done so 16 days ago. In other words, I didn't have to wait another 14+ days for bottle priming to finish and my kettle hops are tasting more vibrant at this younger and fresher age of the batch. The Hoppy Red I tasted today surely has a stronger and better flavor (to me) than lots of commercial beers of the same style I've had before. The difference was so incredibly significant that I am excited to rebrew some of my old batches of hoppy beers that I thought only came out OK. If you are a true hop head homebrewer without a kegging system and have been somewhat disappointed with your past batch hop vibrance, you should really consider making the kegging investment if you can (if not for any of the countless other advantages a kegging system offers). Of course to the discerning palate it won't cover up any real flaws in your process, but it will indeed unlock the true potential of your brew!
