Wow, that seems like a lot. I guess since it's a slim vessel you'll get a thicker layer of trub, but I doubt it will be anywhere near 6". The only way to know for sure is to brew a batch, use a racking cane through the lid, and measure the cake when you're done racking the beer off.

yeah, I was just hoping to not crack the seal since I am fermenting under pressure. I am just going off when fermenting 5.5G in a carboy that has roughly the same diameter the trub is a good 2-3 inches so I am just doubling that since I will be putting in twice as much.

I've use a 15 gallon corny for 15 or so 10-11 gallon batches. I cut 1" off the tube and it works great. The first few ounces are cloudy and then nothing but clear beer until the last dregs. I do cold crash 5 days or so before transfer.

Obviously don't know how much trub your putting out vs. my beers.
