Eric did indeed mention benefits on trub for fermentation, but they were limited and conditional, so for for the sake of clarity and to disassociation myself from your version, it is repeated below. I'll presume your interpretation was a misunderstanding rather than one of intent, but kindly request if you wish to quote me again, you instead supply a link to my statement.Norik wrote:I am incredibly sorry for offending you, I thought you were either being simply rude, or a troll.
Eric mentioned "brewing scientists" had found that trub had benefits on fermentation. Which I requested a source on, and in reply he did an excellent job. Which in turn I felt the need to show my approval for, because he had obviously put some effort in to.
Then you got your knickers in a twist, and felt the need to state that to filter something it must be filterable. However you're right, tautology is well above my education level, and certainly shouldn't get ideas above myself.
I did consider adding some folksy drivel about what I've taught my children, but to be honest you're just being a cock for the sake of being a cock
While yeast can benefit from some of the waste products of the brewing process, it was shown in the very early days of science (another new word of those times) that such surplus was more beneficial to bacteria and other contaminants than for yeast, so purity and a controlled amount of nutrient added to the FV was almost universally adopted.
If your equipment can't hold back trub, don't worry, it is still more likely you will produce a clean and drinkable product than one infected or polluted, but if you purposely allow trub to move to a next stage it's likely you have read more text from ill-informed brewers than of scientific ones.
The second sentence was added as an aid to those genuinely interested in the original question and might have concerns about any limitations of their equipment. I've found most brewers do wish to improve their equipment, processes and understanding as well as their beers and think those who don't might not be the best advocates for increased knowledge.
It was refreshing to note that last posting was your longest in a long time, if not of all time. Those six lines have revealed more than those of less.
