Your idea makes a lot of sense. But I am trying to avoid loose hops in my fermenter. I am tired of clogged up bottling wand.

FWIW, it's interesting to see how things come around...I recall first posting about using Oxiclean to remove labels back around 99-200 on rcb.
Wow, Denny really has been around a long time! rcb = roman conqueror beer
Don't leave them in the oxyclean too long. A scale builds up on things that soak too long.
? I've left bottles soaking for 3weeks and never had scales, slim but no scales.
I remember "double krausening" from beer commercials in the past. I don't remember which of the big 3 made that claim.
Perhaps you're thinking of Old Style. "Twice brewed and fully krauesened." Once for taste, once for smoothness.
Supposedly, the current formula is once again krauesened.
I use a 5 gallon nylon paint strainer for everything but a FWH addition. Works great -- minimal mess.
I like this idea, but it seems like it would be somewhat difficult to use with an immersion chiller.

and then with an oven mitt, you can lift the hops out and sneak the IC underneath - takes a little technique, but its doable.
