Default Did I do a bad thing??

Just finished brewing my second batch (Strong Ale from MW). When I tranferred the wort into the fermentor I strained out the hops that were in the boil. I also realized I did this for my first batch (Hefeweizen) which is bottled now for almost a week. Were these hops suppose to have went into the primary with the wort?

Either way. It's up to you. You did just fine.

Personel choice. Doesn't really matter. It is one of those endless debate discussions.

Me I just dump it all in, hops, break, trub, all goes in.

You're good. I personally try to transfer as little hop material into the primary as possible. That's just me. Others just pour it all in. Both make great beer.
