[quote=“Dan S”]One more follow up question, this time concerning the hop schedule:
I see in the recipe that there is a 1 oz. hop addition at 0 minutes. I generally strain the hops out of my wort after cooling but before going into primary (I use a paint strainer in the bottling bucket) – for this recipe, would I be better advised to leave them in through primary fermentation since the last addition is so late?
Also, any general thoughts on straining out hops (pros or cons) before primary would be welcome.[/quote]
That late addition is for aroma. It will not add bitterness. I normally let the wort sit for 15 minutes after flameout, then chill and finally strain the hops with you take it to the fermentor. You do want to leave the hops behind.
