Hop Oils

Does anybody use them and how did you use them?

I’m thinking about adding them to the keg after cold crashing and transferring to the keg.

I've used the farams hoparoma and hopsensation, they're not great, only really designed to lightly boost the hopd already there in your beer and way too perfumery if you use above the recommended dose. Can spot it a mile off in commercial beers...they were added in cask, so yeah, in keg is fine, the later the better really.
Not used the maltmiller etc ones however.

It was the malt miller ones I had my beady eye on.

Got a couple from MM (Citra and Cascade I think). After several brews stopped bothering - seemed 2nd rate to dry hopping even when ramping up the doseage. Unless you purposefully want/have to avoid a dry hop I'd save your money.

I find them a complete waste of money. You might get a hit off them by adding directly to a pint - if you must.
Best wishes
