Default Do i need to filter hops when transferring to carboy for fermentation?

I just brewed two beers. One is an english style ESB, the other an APA. On the ESB I used a 7 gallon carboy and poured everything into it, including the leftover pellet hops from the boil. I then pitched my yeast. Are you supposed to pour EVERYTHING from the boil into your carboy? Is it important as far as flavor, etc.? Just curious as to what others do...

I did the same thing for my first few brews. Everthing turned out fine. Now I use a stainless kitchen strainer when I pour into the carboy. Some hops still get through but it filters most of it out.

It is fine. You might get more hop flavor, maybe even some grassyness. (Probably not.) I dump my whole boil most of the time. It will all settle out with the yeast cake.

Do you NEED to? - no

filtering out hops will help reduce the amount of trub in your fermenter; making it easier to wash yeast, and will help reduce the chances of off flavors.

I've reused yeast with hops in them with no problems. I don't bother rinsing yeast any more. I only reuse it fresh and never have I noticed any flavor carryover. But then I don't use the whole yeast cake either.

There is a whole forum devoted to yeast. I believe a sticky too that talks about reusing yeast

There's a very good write up on this forum. Go to the yeast tab and you should see "yeast washing". Step by step, very easy. Good luck.

Thanks for the quick responses everyone... This is only my third time brewing, and although i have had pretty impressive results in my last couple of brews (For a beginner), I'm still in the learning process and want to learn as much as possible. I guess after a couple of weeks, I could rack to a secondary but it probably isn't necessary. Thanks again! Cheers!

I don't strain my wort. It all gets dumped in to the fermenter. I also wash yeast without any issues.
