Historically, I've cooled my wort with a immersion chiller and siphoned it off to the carboy once it gets down to a reasonable temperature. I recently installed a false bottom and ball valve. This works well and the elbow attached to the ball valve avoids most of the hop material (whole leaf), but I am seeing a good bit of cold break going into the carboy, which i could avoid with the siphon. Am I missing something here? Would whirl pooling work (i'd think not, since the material would just collect in the center of the false bottom and go through the screen)?
I don't have a huge problem with the cold break, but my main purpose of installing the false bottom was to limit the trub from transferring.
Edit: here is a shot of the latest batch after draining through the false bottom: https://plus.google.com/photos/109320349507283895324/albums/posts/5698298615184160834
