What went wrong? Was this supposed to happen? Should I throw it out? What do I do now?

Cloudy Wort

Postby pfrichar » Tue Nov 24, 2009 11:50 am

2 days ago, I brewed a batch of special bitter from a Chalres Papazian recipe using DME, specialty grains and fresh hops. I boiled for an hour as the recipe specified.

The wort began cloudy and has stayed cloudy. It is fermenting well, but still looks like sludgy chocolate milk.

Should I be worried? What can I do to make it clear now that it is in the carboy fermenting?

The beer will stay cloudy until fermentation is complete due to the yeast in suspension.

Then, hopefully, it will clear when the yeast drops out.
