Quick question: Does everyone just pour all the contents of the cooled wort into the primary or do you "decant" off and leave the solids (grains, spent hops, etc.) from the brew boil behind?
I have done it both ways, but I always tried to leave or strain out the hop residue when I used to use whole, fresh hops. Lately I have just been dumping everything from my brew kettle into the primary where it settles out and gets left behind when I rack to my secondary. It doesn't seem to make a difference, but I'm wondering if I would get a "cleaner" taste by leaving behind some the stuff from the boil. I seem to get clear beer regardless of how I do it.
