In April, we will start using a new dry-hop procedure. With the upcoming firmware update, it will no longer be necessary to use a tea ball to add ingredients during fermentation.
If you're using the Brew Portal, you need to update your recipes to have trub removal steps to remove the dry-hop ingredients.
We recommend to plan for 2-3 trub removals (over the same number of days) if you are dry-hopping with over 10 grams of hops.
You can trigger a trub removal by adding a conditioning step at any time in the fermentation process.
Also, active fermentations will need special attention, as you will no longer receive the ingredient removal user action.
