I have been home brewing for about a year now and finally decided to make the jump from store bought kits to a partial mash.

So tonight i mashed, boiled and cooled...

Shortly after pitching and letting the wort settle down i already start to see some trub forming?

This seems awfully quick to me. Attached is a picture.

Did i screw something up and should make note for next time. I tasted the wort seemed nice and hoppy for what i was brewing. A rickards white clone from hopdawgs.ca

maybe you siphoned a lot of trub into the fermenter. i'd think about racking it after 10-12 days in that case

Normal. Yeast will get active, stir everything up, and it will settle again.

Don't do this solely based on trub going into the fermenter. It's a non-issue in most cases. When I do AG 5.5 gal batches, all of the trub gets dumped into the bucket.

It all settles out in the end.
