No they were in the sink full of sanitizing fluid I got some really good stuff that kills everythingDid you sanitise any of the things you put in the FV?
It looked like you pulled the special airator tool out of a drawer and the hydrometer straight out of its case.
I would lower the temperature a bit. All my beers are temperature controlled at 19*C. If its a kit you are brewing the instructions usually tell you to brew warm since it speeds up the fermentation time, and that justifies them saying you can be drinking it in four weeks or similar when most beers usually need about six weeks or more.
You are rushing things. One of the basics practised by many on here until they get to know what they are doing is the 2+2+2 'rule'. That's 2 weeks in the FV, 2 weeks carbonation, and 2 weeks conditioning. 2 weeks in the FV allows for the primary to finish and the yeast to clean up its own byproducts and then mostly settle out. 2 weeks in carbonation allows for the yeast to consume all of the priming sugar and then start to drop as it finishes its job. 2 weeks in conditioning means the beer matures and will be all the better to drink, but note that some beers do not come good for many weeks and for a few months. So I repeat you are rushing things. Follow the 2+2+2 rule for your first few beers and then you will have gained enough experience to deviate from that to suit what you are doing. Next yes you beer will eventually clear when the yeast has finished its job in the bottle, but note that some yeasts settle quicker than other. Finally take note of my 'signature' under this post
