I second Hammy. Tea balls in the keg. I got them at bed bath and beyond. The have a latch that ensures the ball won't open. I just used two of them to dry hop 3oz in hop slam clone. It was just right with 1.5 in each one left enough room for expansion. When I fished them out they were perfect balls of hops. I will update with pics in a few minutes

Toss pellet dryhops directly into your beer. No reason to ever bag them. The bulging bag will difficult to remove from your carboy neck and probably tear in the process. Pellet hops (unlike leaf hops) will sink and settle on the bottom of your carboy in about 7-10 days.

5 gallon capacity nylon paint strainer bags can be found at Home Depot. Wrap one around your autosiphon and secure. Siphon carefully.
