I brewed an oatmeal stout two weeks ago and I have had it in the primary for the entire time. Yesterday and today I took hydrometer readings using a "thief". Afterwards on both days, I noticed that the thief had a lot of "stuff" stuck to the sides of it, maybe hops?
When I poured the cooled wort into my carboy I passed it through a funnel with a strainer. I thought I did a good job of filtering out the hops then. Assuming that I did not, should there still be this much free-floating stuff in the beer at the two-week point?
