Do you filter your beer before kegging, or are you just using the crash cooling

Never filtered... I crash for a day or so prior to kegging.

If you're using a sanke keg, you could fill it with hot wort and then pressurize with say 20 psi CO2. As the wort cools and contracts, the CO2 would expand and the pressure drop. PV=nRT don't you know.

Not to be contrary, Pol, but could the fact you're kegging be the real secret to your clarity? I've never had homebrew as clear and brite as I do now from the kegerator.

Where did I say that ANYTHING was a secret to clarity? I hate answering questions about claims I never made.

A little defensive, aren't we?

wehumble - to answer the query, prolonged cold storage is extremely effective in achieving star-bright beer.

Tired of answering baseless questions on HBT.

Concerns abound that no chill beer WILL NOT clear, cold storage or not... that was the entire point of this thread.

I don't see how people aren't understanding this either.



Look, people were worried about the clarity of no chill beer. So The Pol posted a picture of a no chill beer so you could see with your own eyes how clear it can be. He didn't say it was more clear than other methods, he said clear beer is ALSO possible with no chill.

So simple a homebrewer could do it.

How the hell do you pour a beer at 34 degrees and not have condensation all over that glass? My glasses get condensation on them before the pour is over!

Jeez, why does The Pol have to go on here and claim that only he can produce clear beer with his no chill technique. What a know-it-all!




KIDDING!!! I'm KIDDING!!!

You wipe it OFF before the photo, otherwise you cannot see the clarity? I know, I know... pure genius.
