Cool then strain it into your primary. It will be cleaner. Some believe if you just dump it all in off flavors my occur.

I'm in the strain b4 primary camp, but I'm not sure it matters either way as everything you're straining out should drop to the bottom.

I strain. Helps make less trub in the primary.

I don't strain. I want all those hop goodies in the primary for a couple weeks. After two weeks I siphon into a secondary for another week of clearing.

Whatever you do, don't pour it through a strainer after it's fermented (eg b/w primary and secondary), because it'll oxidise and give you off-flavours. Just let it settle out in primary and syphon without picking it up. Or strain before primary.

Wiki whirlpooling. Lot less of a pain than straining.
