Possible carbonation problem with little yeast
 
Hi all

I brewed a hobgoblin clone a little over a week ago using wlp005 british ale yeast.
4 days into fermentation, I took a gravity reading of 1.014 down from 1.054.
I transfered to a secondary then bottled after a further 3 days [ 1 week in total ].
My beer seemed crystal cleer and I worried about carbonation not happening.
I usually bottle very murky looking beer from suspended yeast , so with this looking so clear I worried. 2 days in the bottle so far and no sediment at bottom of bottles.
Should I worry that there maybe no yeast to carbonate?

Cheers

Matt

No. There is yeast in there. Be patient.

I get the whole be patient thing, like I said I have just never seen such a clear beer after one week, it honestly is as clear as water.
Usually after 4 weeks I bottle very yeasty beer but 1 week and its this clear?
Upside is I will get that little moor beer in my glass lol

There's still billions of yeast in there to do the job, even if someone cold crashes, there's STILL plenty of yeast to do the job. All you gotta do is relax, and give the beer the time it needs.

Plus, if there's not enough in there, they'll clone themselves til they have what they need. Pretty cool, huh.

Clone themselves?
Cool I never thought of that, I spose thats what they do at the start of fermentation.
By the way, I tasted a sample at bkttling time and its turned out just like the real hobgoblin.
Cant wait till its ready and take it to the brewery and have them compare it, as I only live about a mile away from it.

Cheers

Like real hobgoblin? I would love to see that recipe if it's that good!

Yes just like real hobgoblin.
I tried orfys clone and it was so close just in my own opinion it missed something. I tried several yeasts and have now found that wlp005 seems to get the result.
I can post if anybody wants it?

Cheers
