Works great yea, but I would prefer to add the cool wort in the plastic pale after I attach the paint strainer around the bucket, after the boil, and after the wort has been chilled. Not sure this would work after the beer has been siting on the hops after a week or so. Oxidation might happen from too many rackings. Its better to use a nylon mesh bag in the keg for dry hopping. This way the beer gets flavored, and its easy to dispose of the hops once the keg has been emptied.
CloneFan, do you mean do you mean dry hopping in the secondary or carboy?
