Been trying to tweak my system to maximize wort collection. I am set up to recirculate the boil(ed) wort through the CFWC and get a pretty decent whirlpool. But when I transfer to the fermentor I'm still picking up alot of trub. I've been xferring to a carboy; letting it settle out and then rack to another carboy, but I end up leaving behind like a gallon of wort. I was gonna try putting a "starsan"ed mesh bag over the tube going to the carboy. Anybody have any ideas? I guess i could increase my batch size; just seems like 15-20% is such a waste. What do the "pros" do?
