I tested my whirlpool chiller today.
Normally I do a whirlpool with a spoon after chilling and let it settle for 20 min. The wort is then clear and I rack it to a carboy.
After whirlpooling I let the wort settle for 25 min before racking. The wort was not clear and now (a few hours later) I have 1.5 cm sediment at the bottom of the carboy.
It seems like the pump chops the break material into small pieces that will not settle in reasonable time.
How much time do you whirpoolers leave the wort to settle? Is there another way to handle this? - I want clear wort.
