There are good ways to filter and bad ways. Which did you use?

I used a siphon with a filtering tube attached to it. Hmm...do you think that was it? Lots seemed to get left behind.....but maybe not quite enough!

I am so new to brewing....any advice will be most gratefully received!! :-)

As long as the filter is on the intake and not the output, you did it right.

The only other way to handle it would be to put the hops in a loose bag with some boiled glass marbles or stainless ball bearings.

No mash-out?

I've never done a partial boil, but Coppers situation has me wondering - If you mash at full volume; say 6 gallons, why couldn't you boil 4 or 4 1/2 gallons and keep the rest in reserve for topping up later instead of water? For sanitary purposes you could boil the remaining 1 1/2 to 2 gallons for 5 or 10 minutes while the initial batch is cooling, then throw it all together in the primary. The reasons he can't do a full boil on a 5 gallon batch are the same reasons I can't do a full boil on a 10 gallon batch - my mash tun will hold the volume, but not my brew kettle. My fear is the hop flavors would be affected by the smaller volume of liquid they are being infused into.

Kegged mine last night. Infected. Smells and tastes like it was heavily exposed to oxygen but it wasn't. I left for work for a week and came back and it had bubbled out of the airlock and dried up all over the lid. I used California ale yeast. I've never used this yeast before. My mind is boggled. I will try again with American 1056. Or maybe ow off tube. I know I sanitized the crap out of it. I did keg it in a new keg that had a weird smell though. I rinsed it twice then sanitized it. I don't know. I'm at a loss.
