Default First ferment in conical

Hello Gurus, I started a simple Hefe extract recipe on Saturday and I was wondering when abouts I should dump the stuff that accumulated (yeast cake?) and what to do with it.

Thanks!

Hi John,
Welcome! I have a Blichman and we don't drop the trub, we just make sure the racking arm isn't sitting in it when we keg/bottle. There are definitely some responses on here, just look it up as dumping the trub (sounds so weird doesn't it).
Have fun,
Tiff
