But note that you couldn't do that with a floating dip tube of any sort.

I use this with whole hops, they float, does not clog with whole hops.  Now pellets are a different beast all together. They sink and love to clog.

I just meant that you couldn't use one of those canisters with a floating dip tube,  the dip tube equipment would get hung up on it.  Loose hops with or without a screen as needed will be fine.  Clear Beer has an optional screen for the intake.

I'd rather have questions I can't answer than answers I can't question.

I did buy the Clear Beer system.  It made it here in 1 day!!  I included the screen, a tad pricey though. It will be tested on a clogged dry hopped IPA today. Will post results.  Hopefully the keg won't gush when I open it, I have been bleeding it all week long.

I've had good success with the Top-Draw dip tubes, I have three and will buy more when they are back in stock. Initially I did experience the issue of "No-Draw" mentioned by Robert, especially when filling my portable cannonball kegs, I presume because of the extended draw. Then I read that the trick was in how you connect the float to the dip tube. They are connected with a SS split ring, there are two holes in the end of the dip tube that this ring passes through. The trick is to only use one of the holes. Not sure if it's completely foolproof but I haven't had an issue since I made the change at the beginning of the Summer...

I started using this recently:

I just fermented a super hoppy beer, two weeks in the primary and then straight to the keg.  I dry hopped the beer in a bag with some weights, then I racked to the keg using the screen in the link above.  Super clear beer, one transfer, and I’m drinking the beer right now, a liquid toast black IPA clone. 

Note, I am using all pellets for hops.  My supplier no longer carries full leaf.  This system is working wonder and screen wasn’t to pricey
