Hello. I'm going to dry hop an IPA today. Wondering if anyone just puts the hops in a hop bag and tosses them in when kegging without a string coming out of the top of the keg or anything--just floating.

I put them in a hop sock and then use unflavored dental floss (the flat Glide type). I have never had any C02 leak out of the seal using this type of floss. If you just toss it in without it will be hell if it gets sucked to the tube.

This is what I usually do, but I'm still wary of a co2 leak from another source. Still a little gun shy I guess.
