Seems after the 1st 12 0z. pour it gets stirred up a little even being
gentle with it.
A much taller glass would be the other option .
Could also be the beer needs more conditioning time to solidify
the sediment on the bottom more. Only been bottled 1 week.
Its like being a kid in the candy store being my 1st home brew ever.
I remember my first brew. It can be tough to be patient.
When I use 22oz bottles, I pour into two glasses and leave one in the fridge for a little while. Half way through the first glass, I take the second out of the fridge. This way I pour all at once (rims of the glasses touch each other) but I don't have warm beer in the bottom of a giant glass.
Edit: to answer your question, I personally would NOT pour through a filter. Seems like it would be a mess and there are easy ways to get around the issue.
Also just a though: I know a few people who are really into coffee. They claim you should never use a paper filter to make coffee because the paper absorbs oils from the coffee (they use fine steel screens similar to what is used on a French press). I would think this would happen to some extent with hop oils as well, but I doubt it would have a huge effect. Just a though.
