So I recirc the wort too, that sounds good, but should I be worried about break material?
The simple solution, if you have some extra time, would be just to let everything settle for 30 or so minutes after chilling down to your desired temp. Then just drain the wort from above the break material.

Ah, yeah, that would work. Heh. Thanks!

No worries.  Return the wort in a fashion that sets up a whirlpool, and you are whirlpooling while chilling.

That said, during summer I can't get my wort chilled down far enough with just my chiller. I run off into the carboy/bucket and cool over night and pitch the next morning. I have never had an issue doing so.

Others turn their noses up at this... but I am forced to do it during the summer and also haven't had any issues.

Not sure why anyone would turn there nose up at this.  So long as your sanitation is in check then I'd say this is way better then pitching too hot!
