Default too much trub?

I think the grain bags i used let a whole lot of stuff thru, and i didn't use a bag for my hop pellets.....oh and i did not filter out anything when moving into my primary....which reading now i think i should of. I'm talking like a good 2"- 2 1/2" settled on bottom and a buinch swirling around after 30 hours. I was planning to rack to secondary when femntation slows, Do i need to do so sooner since i have so much swimming around? I don't think i'll ever get this to clear

Relax. It will settle out and compact over the days. No biggy. Just let it ferment out..Interesting. Trub spelled backwards is Burt.

A lot of that is your pellets. They practically dissolve in the boil if they aren't in a bag.
