Alright, so I'm on like my 7th beer (with mixed results) and have a question about how most people transfer their beer. When I go from the brewpot to the primary, I basically just cool down to the low 80s, then dump the whole pot into the primary, am I supposed to be leaving the sediment behind by siphoning or straining?
In a related note, I just cracked my first bottle of a Boulevard Zon clone attempt and it is WAY overspiced. I plan on giving it time to mellow, but at the same time I don't want to have this problem in the future because I've always been told that wits are best fresh. I'll down the dosage on the next batch, but would getting the wort off of the orange/coriander/sediment reduce this?
