I have always strained my wort when transfering to primary.

I never bother, I do stick my auto siphon in a hop/grain/paint strainer bag when transferring to secondary to help strain it but it usually too much in the wort when going from kettle to primary for bag to handle without getting clogged up.

I just use a sanitized colander, does fine for getting the hops out...
Low tech is often the best

I voted 'yes' on the straining, but am not sure what I will do for the next brew.

I have been straining my PM boil of 4 gallons, but I am jumping to a 10 gallon AG batch for my next brew. As you can imagine, it would be pretty difficult to pour my keggle through a strainer.

I must say however that I have always used Irish Moss, despite straining. My beer always clears with a week or two of cold conditioning, and I expect the same for the 10 gallon AG batch.

Yup, I strain my wort... but then i'm only doing partial boils and it's fairly easy right now... When we ramp up and start AG (when $ allows!) that might be a different story!

Which is to say there is a bazooka filter in my kettle. I also use a very fine mesh screen when transferring from fermenter to keg.
