I'm dry hopping using leaf hops for the first time. My question is when I go to keg can I squeeze the beer out of the hop leaves that are in the muslin bags?

I do. I put the bag in a strainer and push it. No contamination or vegetal flavours.

I do as well. No problems yet. Sanitize your hand first.
