After 3 weeks, it is still cloudy. Suggestions?

Recommended Posts

I am on my 2nd brew - trying the pilothouse pilsner recipe. It has been fermenting for about 3 weeks now and it is still cloudy. I don't see a whole lot of bubbles. When I open it, I do see something float to the top and then sink back down - I'm assuming it is the material that has collected at the bottom. It smells fine.

What should I do?

Thanks,
Trey

Bottle it; if you have a hydrometer you can check the gravity to make sure fermentation is complete, but after three weeks on a standard refill you can pretty much count on it. Clarity in the keg isn't anything to be concerned with, it will clear in the bottle.

Cheers!

PHP is "sort of" a Blue Moon clone so....it's going to have a fruity/tripocal feel and you'll taste coriander and orange. It can be cloudy upon bottling but to improve that, stash the LBK in the fridge for 2-3 days.

This is called "cold crashing" and it helps settle the particles out and clear the brew.

You're thinking of Witty Monk. Pilothouse Pils has a white grape finish.

Either way, without taking a hydro reading, you're good to bottle.

Dammit, Abqu, you are 100% right. I just brewed a Witty Monk "mod" and tasted what was left after bottling it (maybe a half a juice glass.

My bad....got it mixed up with PHP.
