I'm in the process of getting my first plate chiller. I've read about hop pellets and debris clogging the chiller. I generally use hop pellets. The plate chiller will be gravity fed for now.
My plan was to place all hop pellets in hop bags in the boil kettle.
Do I need additional filtration prior to sending the wort through the chiller? What do you experienced plate chillers use to prevent clogging your chiller?
