Default Off flavors using nylon paint strainer in boil?

Trying to track down some off flavors. I was wondering if anyone has had flavor issues using a 5 gallon nylon paint strainer for hops during the boiling process? They certainly work well to keep hops out of the trub, but I am not sure I am not extracting anything bad from the nylon after an hour.

I've used those with no issues. What kind of off flavors?

I've often wondered if those nylon bags could be concidered food grade. I use muslin hop & grain sacks myself. Easy to clean.

I don't use them but know several people that do and they consistently win awards with their beer so I have to assume there is no issue using them

I use them, too. I've never had a problem. Though, I will say make sure to rinse out any cleaners (oxiclean, etc..) very, very well, or you just might get detergent flavors in your beer..

I use them, but I just throw my hops in the boil without the nylon bags. I use the bags to line my bottling bucket with and pour the wort into the bottling bucket through the nylon bag. I never have issues this way.

Please don't say you just pour the beer from the Primary to the Secondary!
