Keeping dry hop particles out of the keg?

Brewmates,
I just dry hopped by first batch of Dead Ringer and I was surprised to see how much hops got into my keg! At the beginning and end of the keg got you a mouthful of hop bits. How does everyone go about keeping the hop particles in the secondary and out of the keg?

Dry hop in the keg. Use $.99 panty hose from walmart/walgreens.

If you’re dry hopping in the secondary, cold crash for a day and all the hops should settle out. I always dry hop in the keg though, make sure you put the hops in a bag though. Hop bags work well or cheap pantyhose work well also.

Around here we consider hop bits in the keg an advantage, not a problem!

Denny,
I was excited at first to have little hops bits, but it was overwhelming at the end of the keg!
