very cloudy Ale

Recommended Posts

I just took my ale out of the closet after 20 days to check to make sure it is ready for bottling tomorrow. I had to have a taste. I poured a small nit into a little clear glass and it is very very cloudy. It taste very very good tho, just like a flat ale. The smell is very nice also. I shined a flashlight thru the bucket and could barely see the light thru the beer. I am using the 2 gallon craft beer kit from coopers. Its the translucent fermenter. Is this normal? How do I clear it up if not normal and how do I avoid it from happening in the future.

It is normal and doesn't affect the flavor of the beer. You can clear it up a bit by cold-crashing it (putting the fermenter in the fridge for a day or 2 before bottling), but again, it only affects the look and not the flavor. So unless you're entering into a competition, it doesn't really matter if it's cloudy or not.

No competition. Just wanted to make sure that it is normal. It smelled and taste very good. Will put it back in closet and bottle it tomorrow. 

 

Thanks for the speedy reply.
