Rarely would you ever need to transfer any beer to a secondary - unless of course you are dry hopping or adding fruit, chocolate, etc. IMO it's better to leave it on the yeast for at least 2 weeks....

The trub layer cannot be readily used as a measure on how well the yeast performed. You may not have transferred as much cold/hot break into the fermenter, maybe you didn't use as many hops, etc.

Never had an issue using a blowoff tube that it small enough (approx 3/8" OD) to put directly into the stopper of the BB carboy. I guess that is why I like my Better Bottles... I believe carboys...

Day 2 in the bottle? Way early to start opening bottles. Open 1 a week to see how the carbonation progresses.

Full process will take 3-4 weeks (+/-)

Fermentation is like BBQ... low and slow is the way to go.

After 5 or so days you could let it warm a bit to help facilitate with the cleanup if you so choose.

Overall, the wort will be less fermentable leading to what could be a FG that is quite high. This will also mean the beer will be quite sweet.

Good luck! Cheers!

Crush is the most likely cause... are your thermometers calibrated?
