Default Closed transfer with hop filter?

Ok I've got an APA dryhopping right now, my questions is how do I transfer to a keg while filtering out hop pellets? I plan on force carbing and then bottling this one. I want to keep the beer away from oxygen as much as possible but how do I get the beer into the keg with out running it through a straining bag/funnel? Any help would be great

I sanitize a hop bag and a rubberband, and then fit the hop bag over the intake of my siphon, securing it with the rubberband. Siphon as normal.

That doesn't get clogged on you?

I dry hopped my APA with pellets, when I racked it as usual I tried to get as little hops in the keg as I could but a few lumps still got sucked up. I've pulled three pints so far and none of them has any hops or other crud in the glass.

To be honest, I have only done it a few times. But, I have not had it clog yet I try to keep the intake away from the majority of the pellets near the bottom of the carboy.

I'd be interested in hearing about better way, if there is one.
