Default Verty Cloudy Beer

Just finished an IPA and just Kegged it, which was the first beer i Kegged.

The beer itself is really really cloudy, almost muddy. It tastes fine, but looks terrible.

There are also little bits of crap in the beer, maybe yeast or hops?

Will that all settle eventually ?

Maybe the pressure is too high?

Honestly, if looked weird going into the keg. Just real muddy.

I was about a gallon of water short on the recipe on accident. Maybe that was it

How long did you leave it in the fermenter?

How long did your primary,secondary? Dont feel so bad, at a brewpub i brought home a growler of my favorate of a flight sampler a dry hopped pale ale and it was the murkiest beer i ever seen, i swear it looked like the Mississippi river water here.
Time settles it but what yeast did you use?

Two weeks in a primary and don't remember the yeast. I've never used a secondary yet, but I also never had such muddy beer

Tastes great, and strong as hell actually

Maybe 3-4 weeks in the primary would have cleared it up a bit better? There are also other clearing agents that you could have used both during the boil as well as afterwards. If it tastes good though, go with it.

if it is dry hopped IPA its possible that you see a hop haze. Did you use pellets?
