[EDIT] (I only now saw the secondary comment) If you want to Dry Hop (add hops after primary fermentation has completed) then I usually add about 50g of the same hops that was the "lead character" in the brew.

So its simply a matter of adding hops to the beer when its cool enough. I think your question is mainly concerned with the practicalities of cleanly siphoning ...

When would you recommend throwing the hops in since i wont be able to extract them? For 1 or 2 weeks before you bottle. I am going to filter on my racking cane when i siphon into bottling bucket. Can I just toss them in, and rack on top of them from the primary? You can if you want to. Should I wait until the last week in the secondary? Should I rack ...

It isn't clear from your post what your fermentation schedule is, but it seems like you plan to allow primary fermentation to finish and then rack to a secondary vessel for two weeks. If that's your schedule, then your questions are (1) how long should you dry hop and (2) how should you add the hops to the vessel? The answer to the first question is, "It ...
