I took the ic out stirred like hell for about 2 mins covered the pot and waited for 20 mins, then i drained and still nothing. I thought for sure i had it this time. It does seem like the cold break will appear in clumps in my carboy after like and hour or so though and then it all just dances around with fermentation starts.
How do you know if it hasn't affected the taste unless you make two identical batches and test them(one with trub and one filtered)? If you have a ball valve on your pot, you can effectively strain for $2. go to Lowes and buy a paint strainer.

Well i haven't compared, i just haven't noticed any bad tastes, but i guess that is true, I wont know until i have one without trub. And i have bought like every kinda paint strainer bag they have and it just goes through it.
