No because my beer is still pretty clear. I think what is happening is that the "swirling" is actually breaking up the sediment into smaller, harmless pieces.

The trub at the bottom Isn't from the priming sugar that's dissolved into water,mixed woth the fermented beer,& consumed by the yeast in the bottle. It's the yeast that settles out to the bottom of the bottle.
Having said that,I let my beer stay in primary till FG is reached. Then give it another 3-7 days to clean up & settle out clear or slightly misty. Only a dusting of trub at that point.

Swirling is not breaking anything you are just mixing setteled sediment. If this is a heffe i will understand. If you like yeast flavours ok whatever rocks your boat. But myself I don´t find the sediment of a flocculating american yeast in an IPA for instance to be apealling. Next time instead of doing that try this: pour your beer nicely leaving the sediment behind, in a shot glass pour the sediment, give it a smell, nasty rigth? if you want to you can put that back in your beer if not well you´ve learn something

I think you misread my post. I said it is actually being broken up to different forms.

I also make sure to refrigerate my bottles for a few weeks after they prime at room temp for 2-3 weeks. I know its a long time to wait, but the sediment tends to gets a lot more compacted the longer it stays in the fridge. If I pour gently, the gunk just sticks to the bottom of the bottle. I'm not sure if the three months have been at room temp, if not, stick them in the fridge and leave them there if you can.

Break up in smaller sediments or not. I understand there is some people that like yeast taste and have problems with constipation and well yeast helps but I don´t think the advice it´s correct.

When solid particles settle out of a suspension all shaking the container does is put the particles back into suspension. In this case the particles are yeast. If you like yeast floating around in your beer (some do) then you're good to go.

If you cold crash your beer for around 24-48 hours before bottling day, you will notice a lot less yeast in the bottom of your bottle. Also as kblankenship11 said basically the longer you leave your carbed beer in the fridge undisturbed, the tighter and firmer the yeast get in the bottom of the bottle.

This, also if you have chill haze problems a week in the fridge will help you with that.
