Subject: Filtering hop pellets
Date: 1990-04-02 23:49:20 GMT

I am a happy new homebrewer. Of course that means I have questions.
The beers I have made to date call for hop pellets. I was wondering if
I need to try to filter the wort after boiling to try to remove what I
can of the hop pellets. I have filtered the wort through cheesecloth as
I put it into the fermenter. It stops alot of stuff, but much gets
through. I guess that approximately 50% of the hop pellets get through
into the fermenter. Again, should I even be trying to remove the hop
pellets? And if so, am I removing enough?

Thank you for your support (in advance).
