Default There seems to be something in my bottles

Hello, I bottled my beer yesterday and there seems to be something in my beer. Is this normal?

What dose this something look like? Floaters or sinkers?

It's like what smoke looks like in the air when someone is floating. It's not really ok the top or bottom. Also I added 3/4 cups of run before bottling (2 gallons). It's mr. Beer and I'm upgrading tommorrow so I decided to do a little experiment. Would that affect it?

It could just yeast particulate dropping out of suspension. Give it a few days. As many on this site have said, just give it time; Time heals all, even beer.

Sounds like yeast to me. Chill it in the fridge for a few days and it will settle on the bottom of the bottle.

3/4 cup of rum? In a 2 gallon batch? That seems like enough to kill the yeast to me, but I'm just guessing.

Whoa!! Most beer yeast can take maybe 10-12 per MAX. Youd have to do some math to figure out your new ABV in that batch. Or is there other effects the rum would have Yooper?
