Default cold crash? hop screen. help

Ok so I forgot to put my steel wool under my pick up tube before the boil.

What are my options besides being carefully when I rack to 2ndary or bottling bucket.....

Does cold crashing bring all the hop junk to the bottom?

You should siphon this batch. Time will let the trub/excess hops fall out. Use a siphon and go from top of the beer down keeping the wand off the bottom and out of the leftover hops. Also when you rack to secondary you can put a hop bag around the end of the siphon tip (going into secondary) that will catch most of the hops that you do pick up.

It happens... I did the same thing on my RyiIPA. With about 1.25lbs of hops i only got about 4 gallons out of a 7 gallon boil. I now use a lobster screen inside my kettle that dosent let the hops get sucked out. My girlfriend gave me the idea and it worked like a charm!
