Instead of bothering with an external strainer, you might want to try this http://www.homebrewtalk.com/gallery/...=1&userid=5325
I saw it elsewhere on this forum and it works great. No troubles with sanitizing a strainer cause it's in the boil and no hassles with pouring carefully thru something that will clog anyway. It's just a large PVC coupling with some threaded rod, a large hose clamp and an extra large nylon hop bag. I don't have any problems with hop utilization and when the boil is done, I just let it drain as start my rack to primary through my CFC. One thing, if you build this, just use a dremel or small router to challel a groove in the PVC where the clamp sits. When the PVC gets hot, it tends to warp a bit and I can see the clamp sliding off unless it sits in a small channel. If you want some better pics, let me know and I will take a few.
