I put the hops in a nylon 'hop bag' and simply drop it into the keg right before the keg goes into the fridge to chill and carbonate (for two weeks) before going onto a faucet. Great hop flavors, aromas, and no transferring needed (at all). I also have no need to secure the hop bag to anything, since it easily contains all the hops. I do use whole hops for this, but I'm sure it would work just as well for pellets (sounds like that's what Yooper does).
