Just used my blichmann conical last night for the first time. I tried to strain hops and break as best as I could but near the end there was alot that made it in to conical.
So my question is how long should I wait to dump it out the bottom?
Is sooner better as in 24 hours after?
How does everyone else do theirs?

Thanks
Chris

Whenever it's done fermenting, if not a few weeks (or even months, really) longer.

I usually let it settle for a couple hours then dump from the bottom right before I pitch my yeast. I've had great luck pulling very clean yeast after ferments with this method. I never wash.

I brewed sunday. After I cooled the wort, I transfered to the conical. Waited about 2 hours, dumped a bunch of the hops and break. Then pitched the yeast.

Don't forget to remove the airlock before you dump. I always seem to forget and end up pulling a little starsan through.
