Just posting a heads up on the Wyeast 2565. Keep that fermentation temp down! I fermented at 65-67 in my basement and didn't lager (first beer) and got a lot of the sour apple flavors.

I didn't understand it either. I just copied it verbatim from the BYO article. *shrug*

Whirlpool in a big brewery is basically the same idea as at our level. Get the wort moving in a circular fashion to collect trub in the middle of the vessel prior to cooling or during cooling.

I imagine they whirlpool before chilling because chances are they have a massive plate chiller for batches this size and would want to have any trub they could out of wort before it gets stuck in the chiller.
