I plan on posting all my notes on this for critique, but I don't have those with me right now (at work). BUT I did want to ask a question about the appearance of my beer.
I brewed AHS's Pale Rye Ale, and for my first AG effort I think it went okay. I hit 55% efficiency on my system, but I can attribute some of that to low sparge temps. The real question I have though is, the beer is in the primary (has been for two days) and it's not clear. It looks like a good beer color (caramel-colored), but it is quite opaque... almost milky. I did not add any treatment (salts, etc) to my strike water or my sparge water. Could this be the cause of the appearance? If not, what might?
Thanks for the input, and full notes to come soon.
