Default WHAT in the bloody name of HELL is this?!?!

OK so I just brewed a batch of morebeer.com winter warmer and I just poured the wort fromvthe kettle to the carboy and haven't added the yeast yet and this is what I see.... I am sure I've done everything right. Is is supposed to look like this? This picture was taken literally a minute after the pour...

That is a tremendous amount of cold break and trub...let it ferment though. If you give it at least a few weeks in primary all that material should settle out nicely.

Definitely more trub than the average, but nothing to be worried about!

Did you use a whirlfloc tablet? The first time I used whirlfloc this happened to me. It was quite a ways beyond anything I had experienced just using irish moss. I admit I did get a little weirded out but everything turned out fine.

Hot break.....cold break......totally normal....you are fine......it will settle out

PS ....make sure you cover that carboy with a black tee shirt or something to keep light off the beer ..

It's a glitch in the Matrix. It happens when they change something...

Seriously though, you're fine. Looks like break material/trub and it will settle out over time.
