Beer with trub, or without trub, may or may not be different.

I do not want any residual trub in our beer. As our yeast is harvested, we only want the cleanest, trub free yeast possible.

Thus we go to great lengths to keep the beer we brew free of any brewing waste byproducts.

I harvest yeast with trub and there are no problems. You might want to try it so you can either confirm or rej3ct wht yiy believe you know.   At least, that's the way I do things.

I am glad to hear this. Might give it a try. But it seems that the general consensus was for the yeast to always be clean.

I think that's because in general people buy into what they're told without checking it out for themselves.

i had to google because i read it as "trub" not "troob", and some people are putting an umlaut on the u. not judging, but i thought i was anglicizing it when saying it, but apparently it is "trub".

um i think i just also came up with a kind of discovery here. lol, you often (not always ;) ) hear brewers saying "ver-t/vert" for wort. ha apparently this is an english origin word.

it should likely be pronounced "wort". in german it is "bierw├╝rze" that is defined as "liquid, created during the mashing process"

the process going on here is hyperforeignism, likely due to the belief in the strong (and so it is, at least since the mid 19th century) connection between brewing and germany. not to get too far into it, but anton dreher and others in SW germany went to England and Scotland to see the world's most impressive industrial brewing methodology and took that back with them.

lol, so maybe this is not news to some, but i know i frequently hear "vert" and have heard people say "troob" rather than "trub"
