Good question! I actually did not think of paying attention to it as I forgot that it may be completely different. Lookin at my pictures now it's very hard to tell as none of the pictures show it and I tend to always ferment in plastic fermentation buckets.
Normally I do get extremely large fluffy cold break as I do quick 1-pass CFC chilling. Darn. I should have paid more attention to this. Sorry!
I did finding chilling from 170F to pitch (~65F) to be much faster. I open up my water line 100% and then adjusting the wort flow rate to get the final wort temp I want, and was able to chill much faster than if the wort was near 212F.
I'll have to see if the beer develops any chill haze. It could be that going from 170F to 65F very fast is enough of a temp swing.
