Default filtering hops?

First all grain brew this evening! I went straight into the carboy from the kettle without filtering the hops (used cascade pellets). Now my carboy is green and there is tons of stuff floating around. Is this ok, or do I need to get this stuff out before I pitch the yeast?

RDWHAHB. You can't really get it out at this point and it won't matter much anyway. In the future, put your hops in a hop bag and you'll hold back much of the hop junk that flies around in there. Cool and pitch, then you're gold

I use a nylon net on my primary as I pour my wort through it. Catches everything...be sure to hold it in place with clothes pins as the weight of the hops and water will send it into the primary.

Use your stirrer to get the liquid to pour through.

Use a false bottom and whole/leaf hops... I didn't filter any of my first beers of the hops... they turned out great.

leaving everything on top of the hops for a few weeks to ferment won't change the flavor?

Not in a bad way no... And since it's not like they're boiling in the fermenter it won't get more bitter, but it could give you great aroma. See: Dry Hopping

What's done is done. So now how do you keep that stuff out of your secondary?

And that's what happens when you use panties to ferment your 'beer'. Kidding aside that's straight ingemanuity on bier's part.

That's some nasty looking toilet paper.. C'mon now....

Actually, I just use hop bags for the first time yesterday when I may my Experimental Blonde. I had three bags for my hop bill. They worked out wonderfully and when I poured my wort into my fermenter through my strainer, there was nothing to strain. I just picked up my 3 hop bags, untied the knots, turned them inside out and dumped the spent hops in the trash and rinsed the bags.

Good stuff watching them roll in the boil. I'll use them again.

I might do that next time. I just finished brewing my Maltese Falcon. 9 Oz's of hops is a lot to strain out using the ole colander/paper towel routine.

I'll prolly stick with the 1-gallon paint strainer bags and use the small zip ties.
