My trub looks like bread crumbs

Anyone seen this before, or know why it looks like this? It is about 48 hours into fermentation, and is chugging alone nicely. Using Denny's fav for yeast.

I would start by trying to rouse some of the yeast by gently rocking your fermenter. Although, be careful not to splash too much as to avoid introducing oxygen. Also, maybe move the beer to a...

Mixing the wheat and pale isn't going to make the beer "crap." I say just try it out and see what happens. Worse case scenario, you don't like it and you get rid of left-overs cluttering up your...

(Almost) no amount of cold crashing will remove all of the yeast. Unless you are filtering your beer there will be enough yeast in suspension to bottle condition. Even if it looks clear.
