I am going to be using dogfish heads blood orange hef recipe. Should I add the fruit before the vigorous fermentation or wait until its over and drop it in? I thought about doing half before and half after.

I figured that waiting would be the answer I would get. Do I need to transfer to secondary or can I just add the fruit into primary?
How do y'all normally add the fruit? Muslin bag weighted down by something?
Don't think you would want to use a secondary on a hef since you should not be trying to clear your brew. I have just added the fruit without a bag and seem to get all the flavor I am looking for each time.
