Did my last batch with some loose wood chips in the primary...never again. I'll bag them in with the skins or a separate bag...it was a mess straining them out and keeping them out of the spout.

old paint strainer bag...cut a piece and rubber band it to the bottom of the thief or hose or tube or racking cane....dunk into StarSan and away you go.
Never throw away those old strainer bags, they are handy!

I put anything with solids in a mesh bag, as that allows me to easily squeeze it when necessary.
