I just brewed my fourth batch yesterday --- an IPA. I used hop pellets for the first time in the boil. As expected, a ton of hop pellet sludge made it into the primary despite the fact that I poured the wort through a strainer.
I'm not worried about off-flavors, as this issue seems to be settled based on what I've read so far in the forums. My question is about racking to the secondary. When using the racking cane to rack to the secondary carboy, should I plan to use a nylon bag over the end of the tube to prevent hop particles from making into the secondary? I'm racking to a secondary to dry hop.
