Default Extra chunky trub

Racked Poor Richard's ale to secondary today. A lot of globs of yeast/trub. Like white tar balls. Had to strain it. Has a lot of floating yeast still. SG 1022

I think this one gets filtered and aged.

Murky, a little sweetness. Second sip, the alcohol hits.

Sounds like it just might be characteristic for the yeast you used. Otherwise, did you use any nonstandard ingredients?

i know the english ale yeast will act funny when racking. it has little air pockets that bust in the trub, and send little particles of goo up into the beer, then they fall back out. kinda cool looking.

David,

My Pale was with Cal. it was nasty looking when I went to secondary, but all settle out and this is the clearest beer for me yet. It is a medium flocking yeast, but it settle hard after a week.

Good luck...
