With the bags used for hops, the stuff in the kettle bottom is mostly break material. Depending on the time they go in, I use multiple hop bags, I will see more or less hop material IN the bag that I have to dump after flameout. It certainly doesn't all break up, but a portion of it does and seeps out I'm guessing. I hang them from a double strainer over the top of the brew kettle, something similar to a hop spider but just made from what I had on hand. Since they hang from the strainer, it's easy to sit them on top of it after the boil so any trapped liquid can drain.
