Although I thoroughly clean my nylon hop bags after each boil they have become non-porous. I’ve tried boiling with no improvement to porosity. Any suggestions for getting them porous again?

Throw your tight mesh bags away and find some with a mesh that is more open. I use a coarser mesh bag intended for adding fruit for winemaking. Lets a little more particulate through but always Works great.
