It clogged up real quick on me. I finally had to use a racking cane to get the wort into the fermenter. I am going to have to revisit the filter thing for next time. The best part of the day was nailing the OG right on the head with a 73% eff.
Thanks to everyone here on HBT for your wisdom and advice. You guys seem to answer all the questions I dont even realize I have yet.
If you continue to have problems with the hops, you could boil them in a hop bag. It works really well for me, and keeps hop particulates out of my wort.
That being said, welcome to the show!!! AG is the WAY my friend.
