Do you boil them in the bag? Wouldn't that affect your utilization since the hops aren't banging around as much?
I've been using a bag, next batch they are going in without to test out my Hopstopper.. I'll let you know if there is an appreciable difference.

Now that I think of it, this is the first batch I used Star-San to sanitize the carboy and bottles. Would Star-San give it this off flavor?

(did I just quote myself?)

Yes, you did

I've never gotten a soapy off-taste with star-san and I have huge bubbly mounds of it in my carboy when I rack.
