Since banning lead in paint and everything else, people have been shooting up schools etc. I think lead kills off the homicidal rage part of your brain. just a random thought,

They make ss tea balls that are all mesh.. I have used them with great success but they can only handle a half ounce at a time to be efficient.. I've used 4 at one time before.. Found almost anywhere but I got mine at wally world....

Put a spoon or another piece of flatware in the bag.

Ever had a spoon of fork rust in the silverware drawer?

Nope. Case closed.

I find lead leaves a residual sweetness that only works for certain styles, so only use it in really hoppy beers where you need to balance it out a bit.

I use some extra stainless fittings. You can always pick up some stainless nuts or bolts at the hardware store.

I use those glass marbles that people use in vases. My wife has a bunch lying around, so I scoop up a handful, sanitize 'em, and throw them in with the hops.

Let the hops be free man!!!!!!! Free the hops, no bag!!!!!!!!

Sorry for that. I use no bag and just put a strainer on my auto-siphon to filter the hops out when racking.

I also use pellets for what it is worth.

I'm adding to my comment because I thought you were dry hoping a keg. If your dry hoping secondary just let them be free and use the paint strainer bag to help filter them out as previous stated because that's what I do too unless you are using a conical fermenter..
