Hehe, thanks. I've had a few that got trubbed up like this in the past and I have gotten anywhere from 36-45 12oz bottles out of it. It should compact a lot over the course of a week or so but it still always scares the bejesus outta me.

24 hours later...



I expect the trub to go down another inch or so. We'll see

Just curious...Is that BIAB? I noticed a lot more trub when I experimented with that.

I know it will compact more with time, but the first day really caught me by surprise.

Nope. Batch sparge.

Plus I'm greedy and I don't fear the trub. I just transfer every last scrap out of the kettle that I can.

I've noticed this too, I wonder why that is?

I think its all the insoluble bits of grain that get filtered out during lautering/sparging. Much of that stuff ends up in the wort in BIAB.
