Yeah, loose hop material has tannins which bond with proteins, larger surface area, more visible. Pellets are quite fine so more carrying through to FV probably.
Work on clearing up your wort - recirc, settle, remove bag gently, good hot break and vigorous boil with correct protafloc dosage. BIAB is terrible for carrying loose trub over if you’re not careful - the resulting debris can smother the yeast and cause clarity problems.
If you’re really buggered i had a problematic batch with a very thick wort earlier this year. Brausol shifted it no bother.
