Hey guys, new to the form.
I have a few batches of partial mashes under my belt now. I had a difficult time straining wort into my primary fermenter the other day. I don't know if it was because my grain bag was compromised, or if it was the large amount of hop pellets I used, but I used two strainers and still had to clean them both out several times to get all the fluid in. I am just concerned about contamination due to the amount of time spent poring, and the numerous attempts at cleaning the strainers. I infected a batch of wine this way one time. Any ideas?
Thanks, and nice to meet all of you.
