I was using an auto siphon, so the racking cane was built into it. I marked the side of my auto siphon with a sharpie to indicate about how low I can go and still stay above the trub (since I use a pail and can't see the trub in a full 5 gallons). The mark was based on past experience as my earlier beers all had about the same amount of trub in 5 gallons. The whirlfloc created so much trub tho that my marking was off. That was my problem, not that I wasn't using a racking cane.

I've used Irish moss on all my brews except my last all grain IPA.

While it cleared well anyway, it was noticeably less clear than when I used the Irish Moss, which resulted in a really crystal clear beer.

I just used it as I said in my OP and I couldn't believe how clear it was! I've never had beer I've made be this clear so I loved it! Definitely gonna be a staple of all my brews.
