Default Sediment?

I just finished a five gallon batch of BrandonO's graff recipe. I just put it all in the carboy and finished aerating it but I have noticed that it is separating into distinct layers already. It is not homogenous, but it has also not yet begun fermentation. Will fermentation help to homogenize it or am I F*c*ed?

I will post a pic if needed.

Here is the pic, fermentation hasn't started up yet but if you guys could tell me what is going on that would be great.

Looks like cold break settling out. It'll result in clearer beer, and fermentation won't be affected.

So I have waited the night and it has settled pretty well on the bottom. There are about 2 inches of it on the bottom. Anyone who has brewed graff before, is this common or did I do something wrong? I guess only time will tell.
