There was very little break material in the batch I brewed last night,
and I was wondering why. It had 9 lbs. 2-row, .75 lb cara-pils, and .5 lb.
munich. Infusion mash at 155, 90 minute boil, chilled with copper wort
chiller. This produced less than 1/3 of the usual trub. The difference
may have been the hops; they were in grain bags, rather than loose. Would
the reduced surface area make that much of a difference in the break
production?
