So I've been doing extracts for a while and recently moved up to PM. So far I have always used pellet hops and have left them in the wort after the boild and the hops always settle in the primary over the course ofa week or so.
Today I brewed the "Orange Cascade PA" I found on this site, which called for 2oz sweet orange peel and 1oz corriander for 10min (along with 4 oz of cascade at various intervals, again I used pellets but do have 4lbs in the mail from hopsdirect.com and hope to use leaf from now on)
I went about my normal PM process, but found that after the boil as I was dumping the wort into my primary, my funnel got clogged with the corriander and sweet orange peel right as I got to the end of the wort. So, not a lot of the orange peel or corriander made it into primary.
I'm just wondering, should I be filtering all of the boil additions out anyways, or should I be leaving them in the wort? How will it affect the taste in the end if I filter it out, or if I leave it in?
Sorry for the newbalicious question, but I'm still learning the ropes here ... thanks and brew on !!
