Maybe I'm just being picky about how much I want to let through, but a whirlpool has never done an acceptable job for me. If I try to siphon within a few minutes of doing it, I would have to abandon...

If you don't leave much headspace in the fermentor, you can certainly lose beer to blow off. I usually end up with 5.25 - 5.5 gal in a 6 gallon fermentor and almost always lose at least a little to...

I slip a mesh screen over the end of my racking cane, which filters out all the hop debris. I've done this with many dry-hopped beers and never had anything get through. I only dry hop with whole...
