What is the best way to keep the hops out of the beer when transferring to a carboy? I will be going from using a bucket as a primary to a 6 gallon better bottle. Normally I strain the wort over the bucket to keep the hops out. I tried a Muslin bag today on the end of the auto Siphon to bottle 12 beers and keg the rest. Had a hard time even getting the beer to flow for the 12 beers . I had to remove the muslin bag. To keg the rest of the beer. This beer was dry hopped in the better bottle . Hope it turns out ok, seemed like there was a lot of air bubbles in the siphon while doing this .
