Default Victory grains.

I brewed biab batch using 10lbs pale 2row, 1.5 lbs victory, 1.25 lbs crystal 40, .75 lbs light munich and crystal 20. Hopped it heAvy. The wort appeared cloudy and still does in this pic? Is this maybe starch haze or the result of the victory? This is it in the carboy.

What was your mash temp and duration? The enzymes in the 2-row would have converted all of the starches in the victory.

Mashed at low 150's to 155 for about 75 minutes then 161 for 8-10.

It's cloudy 'cuz you've got a couple billion yeast swimming around in there and they are stirring things up.

Sounds like break material/trub - did you use whirlfloc?

BIAB tends to yield a more cloudy wort which could be your initial cloudiness. Not a big deal because some will be used by yeast and the rest will settle out.

I'm going with yeast at THIS point in time as well, afterall you've still got krausen floating on top. Again, no big deal because with time it should all/mostly settle out.

What yeast strain?

After fermentation is complete, cold crashing will help get some/most of that cloudiness to settle unless you've used a really low flocculating yeast strain. I doubt very much that you didn't have good conversion (what was your OG?) which would mostly exclude starch haze as the culprit.

EDIT:
BTW, that's an awful lot of victory malt for a 5 gallon batch. I'm guessing that this is gonna be one bready, biscuity, hoppy beer . Give a report when you're drinking it because I'd like to know how that amount of victory affects the beer.

I forgot the irish moss. So obviously i knew it would be cloudy but not this bad. Can u add irish moss to the beer after fermentation is complete in boiled and cooled water?

I don't believe the irish moss will help at this point, the beer will be fine though. Do you have the ability to cold crash it after fermentation?
