When I'm done pumping I just unhook the hoses and drain whatever is left into a container. If its on the hot side I put it into kettle b. if its cold side I just discard it. You don't lose a lot.

Once you finish primary, throw your dry hops in (typically 5-10 days depending on your recipe-I usually go 7-10), after that is complete you should bottle. Three weeks in bottle to carbonate will...

Sounds like it will work! I can never seem to get all of the pellets away from the finished beer. This time around I dry hopped with a mix of pellets in a bag and whole cones floating. We'll see how...
