Just to get you in the know we brewers call that a "bright tank" or even "secondary". Keeps us speaking the same language.
It's not a bright tank or a secondary as it's before fermentation....unless I've really missed something...I use those terms often when appropriate after primary fermentation.
I'm just looking for the most sanitary way to settle out break material so there is less present when I pitch the yeast and actually ferment, but it looks like the consensus is that I'm over complicating this. Thanks for the feed back guys!
My apologies. I misread your post. I should wait till after my coffee to read/post on forums. This is not the first time.
I guess you are trying to leave as much trub behind as possible. Personally, I think this is wasted time. Just whirlpool, run off as much clear wort as possible. There is nothing to fear by bringing over some break material into fermentor. In fact, some is beneficial to fermentation.
