So... I will just start with sharing that "Hop Stained" has a nice ring to it for an IPA name, but I digress to my question.
During my first batch, I am becoming paranoid I did not pay enough attention to cleaning throughout my boil. I kept a bucket with sanitizer and kept all instruments in there when I wasn't using them, except my stirring spoon. This was because I was stirring my wort nearly constantly, and after the boil and even after I cleaned the soon, there is still a green tint to it from the hops I imagine.
Is this normal? Does this mean I didn't clean well enough?
