Many people seem to have difficulty getting sorghum beers to clear. I never have, but it's possible that the storage conditions and age of the extract could be a factor. I've seen sorghum beers fermented by friends of mine that were totally opaque even after several months.

I would assume the beer would still be good if it was cloudy? I was gonna give it another month to see if that helped at all... It took awhile for a previous beer to clear up but it started it seemed like it changed over night(not literally)

Also I wonder if adding the hops in the secondary has anything to do with the clarity bc there is still some hops residue on the top. A friend suggested shaking it to mix it in better

Thoughts on that?

I wouldn't recommend shaking--you risk oxidizing the beer. Rack it again and cold-crash it if you can, that'll help settle out any remaining hop matter and might help it clear.

I thought oxidizing the beer might happened. Good thing I never listen to him. Dumb question but what do you mean by cold crashing it?

just what it sounds like, stick it in the fridge for a week, it'll help clear the beer.

Appreciate you giving these updates! I'm still waiting to see what your verdict on the beer is.

I did give the carboy a gentle swirl(not shake) 2 days ago and after that a lot of the hops started to fall. I did that again this morning and more started to fall. Hopefully it will be cleared up next weekend and I can bottle it up!

Success!!! Not sure if it taste just like a two hearted but taste pretty good! I think I would add Irish moss to help with the clarity. Not fully carb yet need another week or so. Overall good and I would remake it!

Great to hear, man! That's definitely going to be my next GF recipe. I submitted the recipe I recently brewed, which also came out very well, which is elsewhere on this subforum.

Congrats!
