Default Straining Wort into Primary Fermentation Bucket

Hey guys I'm looking for an easier, quicker way to strain my cooled wort (70-75 degrees) into my fermentation bucket. I have been doing partial extract beers and am very happy with the process... but I want an easier way to strain my wort. I have looked around the interwebs and all I could really find is this. http://www.usplastic.com/catalog/ite...7445&catid=685 this definitely seems like a good idea and thinking about giving this a try.

What are my other options? What have you guys tried and what has worked well for you?

I will be brewing the Patersbier recipe from Norther Brewer.

+1 to the strainer bag. i got a strainer from my lhbs straight off, and stretched it over the top of my ale pail, and drained the boil kettle, and was instantly hooked on it. been doing it for years

Do the brewers that have been brewing for a long time recommend straining all of the hops and junk out of the wort as it goes into primary? Is there anything to worry about with just pouring it into primary and then letting it settle?

As I learned from this forum, 5 gallon paint strainer bags are cheap and awesome.

I picked up 2 for $3.97 this weekend at Home Depot.

Got all the dry hop crud away from my IPA last night when I racked it to my bottle bucket.

it'll clog the hell out of your equipment. if you get a bag, and strain through it, it takes no extra time. i've been using the same bag from the start, and that bag cost $3 and saved many kegs of beer so they didn't get tons of crap in them

And this straining should be done as the wort is poured into primary, or when racking to secondary/keg/bottling bucket? Sorry if I seem ignorant, it's because I am!

no need for embarrassment, x. we've all been there. put the strainer bag over the top of the fermenter, and drain the boil kettle into it. when you open the valve on the boiler, let it flow into the fermenter through the bag
