    Yeast still in suspension after bottle conditioning

    Case in point.....similar recipes, one on left of picture bottled for 10 days, one on the right for 2 weeks. Pretty confident that one on right will eventually clear fully...

    Yeast still in suspension after bottle conditioning

    I'm a relative beginner to brewing, but the one thing I have learned is that sometimes beer can take ages to clear. The first brew I did was cloudy for ages, whilst the second and third went crystal clear after about a week. The first brew tasted fine, and most of it was drunk cloudy. However...

    Lager

    I just carved at garage temp....spring coming so was obviously warming up. Tried a bottle after 2 weeks....fat as a pancake! Also went very cloudy in the fridge! Actually forgot about it.....probably best thing to do. Dug some out of the garage and into fridge....really clear at 4°C and nice...

    Lager

    This batch of lager is still going! I transferred it into 4 demijohns after a week in primary. They've been stood in the back kitchen for 6 weeks now.....beautifully clear with a steady stream of bubbles rising from the layer of yeast on the bottom! Just transferred them to the garage which is...

    Lager

    I used the wyeast 2278 czech pilsner yeast. Never used before....liquid yeast....comes in a sachet. I recon 75% attenuation should give just under 8%......maybe not *quite* a super lager but pretty potent! Have to wait and see!!

    Beer Clarity

    The batch that hasn't cleared was made following a recipe in Greg hugh's book 'Home Brew Beer', the yeast was white labs WLP002 English ale. The two batches that cleared beautifully were improvised recipes. One used Goldings hops....a pretty standard generic bag of hops bought from a home brew...

    Beer Clarity

    Like you say....a lot of variables! I just decided to.get stuck in and try it.....first attempt with a absolutely no specialist equipment but a grain bag was one of the most successful! Bit mystified by the clear layer at the surface. The top inch is perfectly clear....thought that it would all...
