My latest brew is in the secondary dry hopping at the moment. I was careful when I transferred it from the primary, only taking the beer, not the yeast/break sludge, and that worked out pretty well. After a few days though the top 1/3 is crystal clear, but the bottom has a haze. I used whirlfloc.
I'm not worried about this, but can I expect this to clear? If not, what exactly is the haze? I want to know for next time.
This beer is 14lbs of 2 Row, 1lb of Crystal 20L, 2oz of Magnum at 60 minutes, 1 oz each of Centennial at 30, 10 and 1, and 2oz of Citra for dry hops. Whirlfloc went in at 10 minutes left. Yeast was a very active 1056 made in a 2L starter. This batch exploded twice during fermentation, so maybe this has something to do with it. Temps right now are around 64.
Should I try cold crashing it? It should be cold enough outside for me to do this without redoing my fridge.
