You could, I'm not that patient though and do a lot of 90 minute boils, most of which want some of the bittering hops for all 90 minutes. Even after the break appears you can still get foam and that seems to be where I was seeing some issues. Its all good and I need more data but I plan on testing out a 300 micron version and seeing if that improves my flow through and doesn't result in too much pellet residue after I'm done. Again, this one worked fine! I'm just trying to find the perfect balance and never have to worry about bagging my pellets again ; )
