Well with my last batch and most of the ones prior zi seam to get a lot of trube in my primary. After brewing i whorlpool and let it sit for 10 minor so. Then I run the volume threw a Thermonater and into the carboy. By 2 hrs later I have 1 to 2 in of stuff on the bottom of the carboy. Is there a better way to reduce trube?

thanks\
Tim

Tim, that trub is cold break. Don't worry about it.

Some folks say it provide some yeast nutrients, and it provides nucleation sites, keeping the wort from becoming supersaturated with CO2, which could supress the yeast.

It settles out and is left behind when you rack to secondary.

After racking to the secondary I dump the trub in the grass behind my house.
