Does anyone here dry hop in a conical?

For using pellet hops, do they completely sink, and then you can just dump them out your dump valve? Or do you still need to use bags?

For whole hops, which I have more of and am more likely to be using as dry hops, I was thinking about placing a false bottom screen above the racking port. Do you think yeast would plug up these holes though?

My conical says to Not dry hop with pellets. I have dry hopped with leaf hops in a bag and had worked just fine for me.

Just put them in a hop sock, you should be fine. I have gotten mixed reviews, but i use pantyhose because they are a finer mesh then hop socks.
