Default First Time Brewer

I just brewed my first batch, I used a kit to make it pretty simple. The beer fermented great and it has been bottled now for about 35 days. The beer tastes great but I am noticing some white flaky substance floating in the beer and settling on the bottom. What is it? Is there a cure? Or should I just drink it and forget about it, Making sure it's harmless. Thanks

Yeast and other unfiltered particles. Nothing to worry about. Drink and be merry

That is just sediment. With home brew your usually always going to have some sediment. Using a secondary, which is totally optional, will help clear your beer some. When you pour your beer into the glass leave about an inch in the bottom of the bottle so that stuff doesn't get into your beer. It is completely harmless though.

Yep. Yeast. Pour cold, pour slowly etc as above.

Only way to avoid yeast sediment is to move on over to kegging.

Just pour the yeast in, it's good for you. Like taking vitamins with every beer. At least that's what I tell myself. hahahaha

Do not drink them. Give them all to me for examination. They could be very poisonous.

The important part is the beer tastes good.

also beginner question. Is it possible to filter the sediment, just to make the beer look prettier?
