oh it clogs. i have to stop pouring a few times during the filtering process, use a spoon to suspend/push aside the solids, dump them out, and start pouring again. i typically have to stop 5-7 times during a 5-gal batch.
like i said, it's a slight pain but i don't really mind. i've also said that this is probably an example of me going overboard. the stuff will settle out, and i doubt that the pH of my wort is so far off that tannin extraction is a threat.
