I squeeze the bag all the time, never had a problem. Remember, they're hops - nearly infection-proof. Usually get an extra quart.

Just dip your hands in sanitizer. Or gloves.

I usually just roll hop bag (after giving hands a spray of starsan) from hop spider almost like a tube of toothpaste. It's usually way too hot to squeeze with hands. If I don't squeeze I just let hop bag in until final kettle run out, most of the liquid has drained out by then.
