I'm brewing my second batch ever (first post to this forum, too!) and I was so enthusiastic in getting my cooled wort into the plastic fermenter, I just dumped the whole damn thing into the bucket, trub and all.
That was about 5PM last night.
This morning I was thinking back over my brew procedure and had an "oh crap" moment. What should I do? If I had another fermenter I would just rack it over. I could rack it into my bottling bucket and then back to the fermenter, but that sounds like way too many opportunities to oxygenate my beer or infect it with something nasty.
If I leave the trub in am I going to mess up my Kolsch?
