Anybody else have really fluffy trub as a result of using Whirlfloc? I used a half tablet today in a 5-gallon batch of IPA and could only get a little over 4 gallons in my fermenter - the rest was trub - very fluffy trub!
My batches have a 6.75 gallon boil, 1 hour scrubs about a gallon, and I'm used to loosing about a half a gallon to trub which normally leaves me 5.25 or so in the carboy.
This is the second time this has happened - I was thinking the first time it was something I was doing wrong, but the only thing I had changed was to add the Whirlfloc; a half tablet at T-10 minutes - same as this time.
