Default Does this make any dry hopping sense?

I plan on dry hopping a Pliny the Elder clone in my keg with a tea ball. My concern is to avoid extra sediment from the hops making its way into the dip tube. Its happened to me before. Would it do any justice to put the hops inside a muslin bag-inside a larger tea ball to prevent any hop sediment from leaching or would this cause issues? Oh yeah, Happy New Year!

Ahh, the spirit of experimentation. Good on yer, look forward to hearing if it helped!

Just think, where we'd be if someone hadn't experimented in the first place by letting grains go off, boiling the crap out of them, then throwing some weird yeast stuff into it and drinking the result!

I've had great success in simply using a musilin bag.

I have far better success using just a muslin bag vs using a tea ball
