I've tried both ways, and if anything I find my beer is better when I leave everything in the fermenter. To each his own I guess.

I make my life even easier by simply racking with the bag around my racking cane....The nylon is heat tolerant.

This is a nice method because you can just throw your hops loose into your boil and leave them in the primary. Of course this does require racking to a secondary.
How do you santizie the bag just throw it in with some boiling water?

How do you get rid of hotbreak if you are leaving the hops in there? I had been using mesh or a colander to get the hops but the last few I just dumped them in since a lot of people said it's all good. I figure it's one less thing that could possibly infect the beer.
