Default any way to speed up dry hopping?

hey everyone, i've got a bit of a jam here. i have a beer in secondary that i planned to dry hop this evening. the problem - this beer is for a house guest coming tomorrow(!) that was supposed to come next week. is there any way to speed up the effects of dry hopping? would i be better off crafting a quick hop rocket?

You could try serving through a Randall.

EDIT: Ah I see Hop Rockets can also be used for the same purpose....

bja - force carb in keg - guessing a randall/hop rocket would be the way to go

I would get a tea ball or a nylon bag and dry hop in the keg. I do it with all my IPA's and it works wonderfully.
