Default Oatmeal Stout from 1.064 to 1.010 in 5 days

Wow, this thing went off like a lion and settled like a boid. I will soon need to fill some space in the kegerator and am wandering to throw this in the secondary to clear a bit or let it go one more week in the primary and keg it!

Watcha Think?

Remember fining is not just for appearance, it also helps with flavor as you get a much cleaner taste.

Well, I'll let you know after I clear this one in Primary.

I had a Strong Dark that I cleared and the diff was signifigant. Mostly, I do it because I am a very slow drinker and I would hate to find a stale keg because I didn't clear it.

Meh. Gelatine is cheap.

Let it sit. I've had beers go down much faster than that, but I always let them sit for a while. It will probably help, and it CERTAINLY won't hurt.

The brewer applies a similar process to the one that created the Mythic clear Pepsi of the early 90's.
