We just take the boil pot and put it in ice with a wort chiller. We don't have a separate chill pot. I'll definitely try the coffee filter approach and see how it goes.

In my two batches I haven't bothered filtering into the primary. I auto siphoned my first batch three weeks ago into my bottling bucket w/ a dip tube & my beers had no visible sediment except for the last one. Dip tube FTW.

I've read on here that cheese cloths make wonderful filters. Will try it on my next batch I think. Coffee filters seem small & laborious to me.

A coffee filter is not small or laborous...it is the smallest mesh setting you can get out of any material (gold filters will allow a little more)...simply place the coffee filter in a strainer and your ready to go with an easily movable filter...

No-chill baby! I just dump the whole shootin' match into the cube at flame-out, let it sit for a few days (or weeks, or months), then siphon the nice clear wort into the FV when it's time to pitch some yeasties.

Bumping an old thread for the benefit of Google users...

If you want to keep hop or other sediment out of the bottle, you can put the end of your siphon tube into a sanitized mesh bag before inserting into the carboy. I find that it tends to leave a little beer behind, but it allows a single vessel fermentation even with massive amounts of hop debris (I'm a bit insane with my hop additions).
