During boil, this caused a second LARGE THICK hot break and the foam never really died down. Any cause for concern?
Recirculation after boil for cooling from 200->80 before transferring also caused a lot of thick foam. Never had any foam like this at the end of my boil.
Has anyone else experienced this? It was a Russian Imperial Stout.
It sounds like cold break. Cold break looks like big goobers, while hot break is small fine goobers. But I don't know how you'd get cold break in boiling wort. In the chilling wort, that would be expected, though.
