today i brewed my 1st batch using the late extract method. it was a cream ale so i wanted to try this method to keep it as light as possible. i added 1lb dme in the begining and then added the rest of the lme (6lbs) at flame out and let it sit for 15min before cooling it. i cooled it like i normally do in an ice bath but this time the trub didnt settle as well as it always does so most of it got dumped in the primary. will cause any negative effects besides making it cloudy??
When you siphon your beer off of the trub to either a secondary clearing tank, or to the bottling bucket, just hold the racking cane above all the junk. Since you can't really see it at first, I just put the racking cane a little under the surface, and lower it as the beer level lowers. That keeps it above all the trub and you siphon clear beer off.
