Started my second batch last night and for the most part it went well. I am having trouble getting the cooled wort into the primary, and need some advice to make it easier.
I tried to siphon from the brew kettle through a screened funnel into the bucket, but all the hops clogged that in about 5 seconds. I ended up dumping in whatever the funnel would hold, and srirring that with a spoon to help it pass through the screen, and repeating many times.
Surely, there must be an easier way! Does the wort need to be strained or filtered out as it goes to the primary? What do you do?
