"Here's a rather inane question: is it normal for pelletized hops to
disintigrate completely during the boil? So far I haven't noticed any
excessive bitterness or unpleasant flavors due to this... (I do
strain the wort going into the primary)."

I often wondered if pelletized hops stayed whole in the boil. In fact, I used
to smash them prior to addition to the wort. I was told that they instantly
dissolve in hot wort so since then I don't about them worry anymore.
