    The reason you saw the different layers (the trub settling out) in your fridge sample is
    because you were cold crashing it. Lowering the temperature like that will help all the
    suspended junk settle o...

    From what I have read, temperatures above 150 denature beta amylase rather quickly so you will
    get more unfermentables in your wort. The higher you mash in above that temp, the faster that
    beta amylas...

    Yes that is all trub starting to settle as clearing starts. I personally would leave it in the

    leave behind...

    yeast age. Let it...

    I would start that yeast out in 500 mL of starter wort then step it up two or even three times
    incrementally until you get to the 2L volume (which should be fine). I have a lager going right
    now with ...

    Thank you for your reply!What's the normal way to filter the hot trubs made of hops?Just to
    know it..?Have a good day! :mug:No problem! I personally filter through a piece of cheese cloth
    that I have ...

  • Posted in thread: Hop hot trubs = muddy beer on 11-20-2012 at 10:57 PM
    Sounds completely normal to me. The hops are ground up and pelleted and completely dissolve
    into small bits and pieces. I think the rest of what you are seeing is the cold break which is
    all the prote...
