Default Pellet Hops on Muslin Bags

Any problem with putting pellet hops in muslin bags during boil? They can be a nuisance to get strain out when they are added without a bag. In most of the books pellets seem to be suggested as free additions while plug can be bagged.

I have done both, and I am starting to wonder if their is a loss in hops bitterness and flavor when they are in muslin. Or it could be in my head... either way I would be interested to hear some opinions.

I use pellet hops and haven't noticed any flavor/bitterness loss.

I use the reusable nylon bags and just tie the drawstring to my boil kettle handle. Pretty simple.

I have the parts to make one of those now, but I'm going to build mine with the large mouth side of the flange facing down.

I think the advantage is for late hops additions. I toss in hops at 20, 15, 10, 5 and 1 minute intervals.

Those edges are my sober-izer. They remind me not to drink too much till the airlocks are fastened.

Your contraption would make all those additions easier--I just do a 60 & a 10 (usually) so I don't need anything fancy.

Do you guys find that the large hop bag that BM posted works well in 5 gal batches? I just did my first test with it in my keggle and I don't know if it moved around a lot during the boil.
