Trub loss

Post by brhenrio » 2 years ago

What does everyone do to deal with their trub in kettle? Im at a loss, i have tried several methods but still wind up with too much in the fermentor. Most of my trub lools like hot break. How many skim it off? I even plugged off my maximiser this brew but i think that had to do with something else.
In the fermentor: Golden Sour, Not a Pil
Tap 1: Puck that Filsner
Tap 2:
Tap 3: Paddockwood Kolsch
Tap 4:

Don't worry about it; there are a lot of studies out there showing that trub in the fermenter is good, having a beneficial effect on yeast similar to that of oxygen. It'l settle out during fermentation and you siphon the beer off of it after.

I agree, trub in the fermentor isn't an issue. I use a hopstopper and still get trub in my fermentor but I don't worry about it.
