Default Question about dry hopping in keg.

Is there a good way to dry hop in a keg with pellets? I have hop sacks but think they will allow the smaller pieces of the pellets out. Any suggestions?

Use one of those stainless mesh tea balls, and a dip tube screen in the keg

You can also get fine mesh bags that will allow you to dry hop with pellets.

I use the stainless tea balls. Some of the hops get through, but I just tell myself they are "flavor pellets".
