What is trub?
The term used for the lees, or layer of sediment, left at the bottom of the fermenter after the yeast has completed the bulk of the fermentation. It is composed mainly of proteins and dead yeast.
It also refers to hop debris. This can be a particular issue with new super-premium beer kits which include hop pellets for dry hopping. Removing these before bottling or barreling will prevent off-flavours developing in the finished beer.
