So I brewed a batch of IPA last night and used a hefty amount of whole leaf hops (6 oz in 5 gallons). I didn't want to waste any precious wort, so when I transferred to my fermenter I dumped the hops into a strainer over the bucket and smashed the bejeezus out of them with a sanitized spoon.
I know some people are of the opinion that you should never squeeze a grain bag otherwise you risk extracting tannins. Is this an issue with hops? Aside from possibly getting more hops bits in the fermenter, is there any issue with squeezing the cooled wort out of hops?
