Default Wort to fermenter filtering

I was wondering what techniques people used to filter out the hops from the wort during the move to the primary fermenter.

Also, what are the adverse affects if the hop sediment makes it into the fermenter?

I put a paint straining bag over a large funnel and pour the wort thru that. Some people line the bucket with a straining bag, pour into bucket, then remove the bag.

I've heard of no problems leaving them in the fermenter. I harvest and reuse a lot of yeast, so I like to minimize the hops that get in.

I usually strain my wort through a screen that fits in my funnel. For batches with lots of hops, I put a paint strainer bag in my bottling bucket and then pour the wort in there. Slowly lift and let it drain as it filters out the hops.

I built a hop spider(search forum for directions). When I'm lazy though... I just tie my hops up in muslin bags.

I put hops in bags during the boil then pull them out at the appropriate time. My first few batches, and some when I'm I'll prepared, have had the hops left in them with no I'll taste that I've noticed, just a lot more junk in the fermenter.

Sometimes I whirlpool, sometimes I just dump it all in. Seems to come out pretty much identically either way.

Like King, I use a hop spider that is hand made, it works great. I also have a mesh screen in the bottom os my BK to catch any stuff that gets through as well as some cold break sludge.
