Default Pellet hops for dry hopping

I just finished an APA 3 weeks ago and it has been in the keg for 1 week after 10 days primary and 4 days secondary with dry hops (1oz cascades pellet form).

I poured the first beer from this yesterday and it was chockfull of hops.

I used a small muslin bag to strain out any broken down hops that might have come through on the transfer.

I realize I'm not running this through a filter and there is going to be some sediment that will eventually get poured out after it settles more.

Anybody have possible solutions: A tertiary racking? Paint strainer?, Don't use pellet hops for dry hopping?

Any suggetions would be helpful. Outside of the unsettled hops, I really like the beer.

Thanks everyone!

If you use 1/2 OZ. of hops,youd probably be ok.
