I dig the cryo hops but they are a little harder to use.

I assume you mean the powder?  Have you tried the pellets?  Do you still find them difficult?

Yes, the powder. I worry about it mixing properly. I heard they were coming out with pellets but didn't know that was available yet.

Yeah, they've been available for a while.  I use a combo of the pellets and powder and have no issues.

I'm adding a new lazy brewer procedure today. I used to let my wort settle about 15 minutes after recirulation chilling, then rack it to fermenter with an auto siphon. I've heard enough evidence to convince me to just pump it straight to fermenter as soon as I hit pitching temp. I'm looking forward to not staring at my timer trying to Zen 15 minutes away. I'm looking forward to not sanitizing my auto siphon. I'm looking forward to not cleaning my auto siphon. And I'm looking forward to even more amazing beer from just leaving the trub in there.

Actually I'm adding 2 new lazy brewer procedures. The other one is mash recirculation. I used to make an aluminum foil cap with slits in it, and place that on top of my mash. Then recirculation hose flows onto that. I was thinking channeling when I first started doing it, which is not an issue because I'm not fly soaring. But I just kept making them out of habit. Reading Martin's comment on another thread, that just running the hose into the top is fine and will reduce mash O2dation, I've decided to just do it.

Looking forward to not making the foil disk, and not fishing it out after runoff. And looking forward to even more amazing results from this low effort LODO technique.

Sorry to break it to you but that won’t do anything for ya!

With everything being so much easier, I bet you will feel like you're fly soaring.  Gotta love autocorrupt!

Of course it will.  It may not do what you would have him do, but it will make his brew day easier and more fun.

Agreed. I meant that it won’t do anything oxygen related. Will certainly simplify things though.

It's vorlauf. I think it will get my running somewhat more clear of grain bits than just dumping the whole thing into the boil. So there's that.

I'm an HSA denier, so actually the O2dation part is just to fit in. I realize it won't prevent HSA but I don't believe it exists anyway.

And the people most emphatic about keeping grain bits out of the boil are the ones who just did a decoction mash....is anything real?!🤔

For the record Jim: I wasn’t trying to antagonize you. I recognized the humor I’m sure you intended and was only about 10% serious.

Of course if you are ever interested in new methods, we got your back!
