Made it today .... a bit worried about when I racked to primary. My pickup tube clogged and then my siphon clogged so I poured it in to a strainer. We will see......

don't worry about that.. I've dumped the entire kettle into the primary before with no harm done..

I actually only use a strainer...when I first started brewing I used a siphon but as I got in to reusing and washing yeast I started straining my wort in order to get rid of the hops and other stuff that I didn't want in my trub....in no way shape or form will this hurt your beer, actually it might have helped it because you introduced more oxygen by straining it!

It's officially bottled after a 22 day primary!

I'm really looking forward to tasting a fully carbed and cold one in 2-3 weeks. The taste is very smooth and the lime is there, but not in your face. I think the carbonation will really get the crispness on the palate. The smoothness along with neat 7% alcohol is going to be dangerous! I'll post more notes once it's "ready". Thanks.

I know the straining wont hurt it. I would use a strainer more but dumping a keggle with 6 gl in it isn't easy....... I need to resolver my pick up tube and come up with a better hop screen or use hop bags.

Just a tip. I used a veggie peeler since I don't have a zester and it worked great just took the green off and left the white......
I have tried a cheese graded before and that didn't work as well
