Default Super Quick Help Needed!

I am just about to cool my Dry stout and was wondering if I need to pull the hop bags before I cool or leave them in the entire time????

I'd leave them in, but it's just a matter of preference. I didn't even use hop bags on my last one. Just let'em float around free in the boil.

I'd pull them, but it won't be the end of the world if you don't. In fact, it probably won't make any difference at all.

I would leave them in. I dont use hop bags so all my hop particles remain in the kettle until cooled. Then I strain them out when pouring into my primary..

Thanks,
I've always left them in but wasn't sure if it was the right thing to do. I pulled them this time.

I always leave my hops in. But, I rarely use bags. It really doesn't matter, either way.
