This photo is 2 weeks post fermentation, sure glad I used a blow off. I hit my FG so I'm not worried, but I've never seen that much trub make its way through the blow off tube. Any concerns or is this rather typical?

How much headspace did your beer have, it looks like you collected lots of yeast through the blowoff.

Looks like you got yourself a nice supply of washed yeast!

I just dumped out a pickle jar that looked like that today Poor yeasties, but there's plenty more where they came from in the fermenter.
