At the moment the most frustrating part of my brewday is getting the cold wort into the fermenter. Here is my process. I have a 20 litre saucepan that i use as a kettle that does not have a tap. At flame out I add my immerseion chiller that is plumbed into my kitchen sink tap. When I have reached temperature I remove the chiller and whirlpool and leave it to rest to 30 minutes. I am use a siphon to rack directly into the plastic bucket fermenter.
The problem is that the siphon always gets clogged with the hops after i have only transfered about 20% of the wort. I have also tried carefully pouring the wort through a seive, but this sort of depfeats the point of the whirlpool and also the seive got blocked with hops as well. All in all i end up wasting a lot of the wort because i am afraid of getting a lot trub in the fermenter.
What are the best processes to use with my current equpment to get the wort into the fermenter?
