Very green homebrewer here so forgive me if this is a silly/common question:

If dry hopping (pellets) in secondary (secondary is glass carboy, primary is plastic bucket with spigot), would it help to dump the hops in the dry carboy before racking, basically to minimize movement? Also would racking onto the hops in the secondary be enough to disperse the hops into the liquid without stirring?

Thanks in advance.

No question is silly and yes, put the hops in and rack the beer, perfectly fine!
