shouldn't be any problem. Like I said b4...i don't even use a bag, I just toss the leaf hops into my secondary and rack the beer on top of them, and they just float on top. some eventually sink and float around in the beer. I think i get a good enough "aroma" from this way.
On the marble thing...i can't understand why the marbles would "shatter"? They would have to get thrown pretty hard for this to happen. I've used that trick times before but have issues getting the bag out of my carboy, thats why i don't do it much with the carboy. When I use a keg as a secondary I do use the marbles.
