Default Hop Pellets in the Secondary

Claifornia Pilsner, Fermenting at 65Fish.
I want to add an oz of Golding Hops which I bought from the LHBS on the guys recommendation.

Should I drop them in there with the idea of racking them off when I move to the Primer, or so I really need a Hop bag?

I would use the bag, even if you miss a few of those can you imagine taking a drink and then getting a piece of hop pellet stuck under your tounge.................talk about bitter. Or, you could always rack into a strainer.

A fine mesh hop bag is a good idea when dryhopping with pellets. Don't be too surprised if you get a lot of trub anyway.
