So with the method you mentioned above, does it matter if I check the gravity after it has cooled in the icebath and BEFORE I pour it off the trub or AFTER I pour it off the trub?
If you're not adding water, the gravity isn't going to change, so it doesn't matter when you pull the sample. But I'd wait to calculate until you know the volume, since you'll lose a small amount taking it off the trub. At the same time, I know it's a matter for debate here (and everywhere), but I've never had problems just dumping it all in the fermenter, trub and all.
