Default Dry hop with pellets?

As the title goes, can you dry hop with hop pellets?

You most certainly can! Just pour them right in the secondary! I did and my IPA turned out heavenly.

Excellent, i have about 1/2 an ounce of some Tettnanger left over from a Hefe we did last month. Think that will work?

They just settle out with everything else and do give you that aroma you are looking for.

I have dryhopped pellets a lot, and it is fine. Go for it!

Use a muslin dry hopping bag or a nylon sock if you're worried about hop debris.

I dry hopped my SNPA clone with pellet hops. I should have put them into secondary and then siphoned onto them but I forgot. Anyway, I just looked at it an it looks like there's a second krausen on it, but I'm pretty sure its hop bits floating on the surface.

I just did this. Put them in before you syphon. I used a 5 gal carboy and had to put a blow off tube on it.
