I brewed a mint chocolate stout recently, which was really just a chocolate stout. I have some mint leaves soaking in vodka and I plan to add it to the keg when fermentation is done. Obviously, I don't want all those leaves in there.

Cheesecloth soaked in starsan seemed like the most obvious choice. But I wanted to explore other ideas and see if there was something I was not thinking of.

Use a SS tea ball they work good for hops to and they have a chain on them so you can hook inside the keg.

The good thing about a metal strainer is that they can be sanitized multiple ways, including dropping in boiling water.

Go easy on the mint...Otherwise it will taste like dentist tooth cleaner.
