Default Hops squeezing

Is it OK to squeeze the liquid out of the hop bag after the boil? The two batches that I boiled I just took it out and just let it drain. Am I losing anything?

I squeezed mine before then read you don't squeeze malts (tannins) so I stopped it...once. Next brew squeezed again...I found no difference.

You're welcome, but I'm certain there will be other comments (pros and cons) forthcoming...

Squeezin' my hop bag belongs in the terms that sound dirty but aren't thread.

I used to, but don't any more. Couldn't tell any difference in flavor & squeezing put a lot more crud in the fermenter.

I always squeeze my bag. I sometimes even do it when I'm brewing

When doing a partial boil, I rinse it with my cold filler water.
