Cloudy Grey Beer???

Postby Kilerclown » Thu May 30, 2002 8:30 am

I made a strawberry wheat beer (using fresh strawberries) and its sitting in the secondary...its been there almost three weeks now and its got this funky green grey color to it. It smells great but the color looks like a baby diper. I think Im gonna throw it in the fridge for a couple days and bottle it. Its definately not one I would serve to company...or they would drink once they looked at it...will the fridge clear it up?

If it tastes ok you might consider using a clarifying agent of some kind before you put it in the fridge ( Gelatin etc ). It might be some funky protein suspension that a strawberry may give off. If not have a halloween party and tell your friends you meant to do that.
