So, me the big man, decided that the funnel that I was using for 20 years was not "good enough", so I splurged and got this: https://www.northernbrewer.com/products/8-funnel-with-strainer, I think.. a funnel with a strainer, wow that may help clear up my beer (note I do extract brewing only). So this weekend I do a batch (Amber Ale: 1 lbs of gran (in muslin), 6 lbs of LME, 3 oz hops (all in muslin).. and I use my brand new funnel and the strainer clogs up -- to the point of no beer going through--- after I pour about a quart of the beer into the carboy.... wow I think, that was not expected... I put down the pot... I clean out the strainer.. pour again.. .maybe 2 cups later.. clogged, I do this 2 or 3 more times all in maybe I get a gallon of "strained" beer in to the carboy.. so I pop the screen out and fill the rest....
So, am I doing something wrong? is there a way to get less sediment? should I not use the strainer to go between the pot and the carboy (if so then when do you use the strainer).. this is all very puzzeling to me.. please explain.
