Pilot house pilsner is super cloudy.

Recommended Posts

For the first time I used 3 packets of yeast and a pilot house pilsner. It has fermented for about 3 weeks and it is super cloudy. Looks like a wheat. Lol. I have placed the LBK in the fridge in my first attempt to cold crash. Good idea? Also do you think the extra packet of yeast is what is causing this cloudiness ?

The sample from the LBK will almost always be cloudy. Nothing to worry about, its probably just some trub that settled near the spigot.

The cold crash will help clear it up and it will clear up even more in the bottles. The extra yeast did nothing but good things for you.

My Pilothouse Pilsner turned out very clear. I've been drinking them this weekend in fact. I did do a cold crash before bottling and was very happy with the results. Nice clarity on bottling day - better after 11 days and even better after 4 weeks conditioning.

Personally, I've never paid a lick of attention to the clarity in the LBK. A MB refill should clear nicely in the bottle.
