Default whirlpooling

Just brewed a honey wheat with orange Peel and some coriander. Did a whirlpool and I have to say I am now a believer of it.

If you let it sit for maybe 10 minutes after stirring, you will get more accumulation in the center. Nice job.

I've done it quit a bit. Whole hops mess it up. Works well with pellets though.

yes whole hops mess it up unless you have a screen or a hopblocker. I did yoopers pale ale with some home grown hops that were growing with my grapes and one cone plugged the valve. I might of been able to rack it with out problem, but my auto syphon took a dump on my and will not prime. I really need a do up a keggle and a pump to do this right.

How long do you let your zero minute hop additions steep before cooling?

i will also add that the nice little cone looks great but my eff reall sucked on this brew and my last. I am going to buy a mill of my own to try and correct this. both were ren through the same LHBS mill. Previous was 10% higher.

My flame out hops steep 10 minutes before I turn on my IC most of the time. I've done it some other ways but that works best for me.
