Default Junk at the botton of me wort

Hello everyone.

I cooked a batch of pale ale about 2 weeks ago and will be doing it again soon. But I have a question before I repeat:

Last batch had all sorts of "heavy" stuff at the bottom of the brew kettle when I poured it into the carboy--looked almost like tapioca balls. I think this comes from the hot break(?). I just poured it in, thinking it would just settle out into the trub anyway. Should I have tried to leave it in the pot? Or perhaps strained it out? What was it? Can somebody drop some wisdom on me?

Hot break, leave it behind if possible.

. . . But don't fret over not having done so.

It's best to leave it out, but the fact is that your beer will be just fine anyway.


Cheers,

I pour through a funnel filtered with cheese cloth, it significantly reduces trub
