Don’t sweat it. No problem there at all. It’s a conical fermeter so can de-trub at some point if it bothers you.Hey everybody. It went well today. I did a dme brew coz I had a batch that needed brewing. However using the pump transfer to the fermenter, although it wad nice and easy, moved lots of proteins in the FV that would usually be left in the pan when using the u bend and the wand. Not sure if this will affect the brew, suppose wel'l find out. I didn't really want to have to take the collection bottle off a bunch of times fro the fermenter to clear it. Still trying to dial everything in. Trying to brew on a regular basis to get these things ironed out. Pic below of how much actual ***** is in there.
I'm also fermenting quite warm and under 20 psi to try a dr hans style lager thing.

I’ve found that though the whirlpool arm gathers the hops into a nice cone, is the wort level drops around it when you transfer to the fermenter hops slide off the side of the cone and slip by the edges of the poorly fitting BZ false bottom. I’m trying to work out a way to seal the FB edge to prevent this. Mainly to protect the pump and maintain pump performance.
