Default Biab all grain hefe sediment

I got tons. Probably normal though I guess. I poured my hydrometer test vase and there were maybe two inches crud.
Is there a way to prevent this?
Thanks

Default

It depends if the crud was protein or draff. If it was draff, a finer mesh, or vorlaufing the wort through the bag would help clear the wort. If the crud was protein, then a step mash with a protein rest, and using whirlfloc in the kettle would help.

Before I vorlaufed I would get a few inches of draff in the bottom of my fermentors. Now I only get maybe 1/4" at the most.
