I will probably use a hop bag as I do not want to risk getting any hop residue into the bottles - Brazilian did I read correctly you use a sock (boiled and sterilised) as a hop bag?
The bags of pellets are 100grams - would you put them all into the 23litre wort?
Sorry, didn't mean to confuse! It's a 'hop sock' I have. Just a small mesh bag with a drawstring which is intended for containing hops. A small muslin tied up would do the same thing. I grabbed mine for a few pence from the local homebrew shop.
I worked on a ratio of 30g for a 23L brew. I actually had 7.5L in my fermenter so used 30/23 x 7.5 = 10g
It turned out lovely
