Questiion is about cold break -- I didnt get any at all -- got the typical cake at bottom about day 2-3 but not alot of gunk floating in beer like I see on some pics online???

Did you use Irish Moss or Whirlfloc? I notice a tremendous decrease in cold break if I forget the IM.

Thats whats puzzling me -- yes I used appropriate amount of five star super moss 15 minutes before boil finished and didnt even have much trub in bottom of boil kettle much less cold break in carboy??? I did what I thought was a beautiful vorlouf till clear, filtered the wort going into carboy and had a 90 minute rolling boil off??? Dont quite get it. doc
