Just throw them straight into your wort. Unless you're using a CFC or a chilling plate, it won't matter.

Dump them in and strain later...

i use whole and pellet hops and i don't strain it one bit. they will fall out during fermintation. unless your going for commercial clear beer, i really wouldn't worry about it.

Got a kitchen strainer? One with screen door type material? That'll get most of it out.

Yeah, that's what I do too. You get the bulk of them out that way with the least amount of hassle. What's left behind comes out after the primary.

You'd love what I did for this. I did take one of those kitchen strainer thingys and use it, but not how you told me. I put the pellets in it, hooked my stirring spoon thru the handle and dropped it in at an angle. The pellets broke up, but it was only an ounce and a half and I think it kept most in.

Now I've got a LOT of hot and cold break. Should I be siphoning, or can I just dump into the fermenter and rack to 2ndary 8-10 days later?

PS: Brad, that's awesome how you did that with just stirring!

Even with a pump, the whirlpool works great with pellets. I usually use irish moss, but last time I just stirred it around a few times and started the flow. It clogged my pump right as it started, but I cleaned that out and then ran 20 more gallons through with no problem.

So you whirlpool before you cool? Doesn't that leave 30 minutes or so until you are going through the chiller? Don't you want to chill as soon as possible after the boil?
