Would straining make a difference when I am using pellet hops rather than whole leaf or would it be better to just siphon the beer from the primary to the bottling bucket with some extra care?
I just made a beer with pellet hops and my straining attempt was pathetic. Basically I just flushed it all into the carboy and ended up with too much water.
I suppose you can strain the pellet hops out but you need to use a course strainer. I'm hoping a delicate racking will separate the hops out...after the primary fermentation.
It will be tricky not to get oxygen into it though. Thinking about buying those filters and pushing it from one 5gallon corny to another one.
