Over week ago I made my stout asked a few questons on here when i got stuck. I mashed without bagging my grains now the stout is just about ready to bottle but its very bitty should I strain it through some fine cloth as I bottle

Not if you want to oxidize it. Put a muslin hop sock over the end of your siphon in the bottling bucket to do the job. If your fermenter has a spigot,then put the sock over the end of the tubing that you atached to the spigot on the bottling bucket end.

I assume you mean that it is "very bitter"? If so, I'm not sure any pieces of grain floating around in there are the culprit (and even if so, the "damage" is done, so straining them won't help with the bitterness).

What was your recipe?

I thought getting the floaters out would help in the long run if what he's tasting is green beer "bite". The hops usually are kinda bitter in green beer till it conditions.

Try giving it another week or so. It may clear up.

I ment that I have a lot of minute pieces of the crushed grain left in amongst the liquid I didn't strain it very well into the fermenter
