I just did a 3 Gallon boil with about 100g of hops.
It felt like I left a lot of wort in the brew pot when transferring to the fermenter. It was a struggle to keep the flow in the siphon due to all of the hops at the bottom of the pot.
The gravity reading was a lot below target in the fermenter.
How much of the wort should I be aiming to leave in the brew pot?
What are the best strategies for getting the most wort through the siphon?
EDIT: this was a partial mash brew (2kg malt, 500g oatmeal), with 2kg of LME added for the start of the boil. It was my first partial mash brew, so I need to figure out getting the right gravity from that, but I could see I was leaving a lot of good wort behind in the brew pot and that didn't feel right. I will transfer all the wort to the fermenter next time, and see how the gravity compares to the target. Thanks for all of the advice.
