What is the meaning of "trub" in a paragraph below?

Over the course of a week or a few months, solid particles settle to the bottom of your fermenting brew. Unless you like chunky-style beer, you have to separate your brew from these solids--from the trub--in a process known as racking. After that, and a bit of conditioning, you have your batch of Mesopotamia's Best, on tap since 6000 BC.

Well I never heard of that word before, but I looked in Google, and a website had this to say:

Trub, pronounced troob- "The sediment at the bottom of the fermenter consisting of Hot and Cold Break material and dead yeast"

Lori-san, Thank you. Google is really great, is't it?
