I just brewed my sierra celebration clone. I added about 1.5 oz of hops at flameout.
As I have done with my past two batches i screened my wort before putting it into the primary. I thought to myself, the aroma hops have only been in for 5 minutes or less, am I screening out the hop goodness I just added 5 minutes ago?
This led me to another screening question. My past two batches have been screened with a very small screen that came with my funnel. This batch I used a new screen purchased from midwest brewers that allowed alot more tiny fines into the primary. Screening with the funnel screen takes FOREVER because it pics up a very large portion of the solids. The new stainless screen worked in 3 pours like a charm.
Please give me some insight on screening out aroma hops, AND what is an appropriate amount of screening to use. I have attached some pictures of the two strainer screens.
