Transferred to secondary and dry hopped yesterday. Surprisingly the yeast cake was very small, only about 1 quart of yeast (barely filled two pint sized mason jars,)

Covered the top of the secondary with a blanket of CO2 and let her sit and come back up to 70, will reduce back to the mid 50's once I transfer my pumpkin beer to secondary today.

How quickly are you chilling the whirlpool after the last hop addition?

I let it sit without heat, open to the air, for about 20-30 minutes. I'm not sure on the actual temps, but I'm pretty sure it stays hot enough to kill any nasties that may land in it. A quick chill and a big yeast pitch help with keeping the wort bacteria-free too.
