I made this recently with lager yeast. I transferred to the secondary this week and added 1tsp of amalyze extract in secondary prior ti putting beer in secondary. I added the powdery extract straight in witiut dissolving it first.

Did i do this wrong, there has been no added activity like others have reported.

Also, there is about 1 or 2 inches at the very top of the secondary that is soooooooo crystal clear but a definite haze in the beer below it.

Will the whole beer drop clear like the first few inches?

It is in the secondary at 52 degrees.

Thanks for your help

Yes it should drop out clear top to bottom. Give it at least two weeks.

Thanks...quick question...did i add the extract correctly by just adding it, by itself, into the secondary prior to transfering the beer

Thanks

Yes, that is right... I've never done it, but I have read, and then re-read this post about three times and that is talked about, and stated that you just add the powder to the secondary and then rack on top of it.

Awesome...thanks...once these posts get any higher than a couple pages I find it laborious to go through every page to find the needle in the hay stack.

Thanks again...just hoping this beer clears up in a couple weeks

Haha no problem, I don't blame you for not reading through everything! I don't know why I enjoy it so much! I can't stand reading anything else... I hope everything works out for you! I wish I could offer more insight, but unfortunately I haven't brewed this one yet... But it's definitely on my NTB list!

Bottled mine yesterday, it sure smelled better than BMC lite beers and it tasted pretty good for warm flat beer. I definitely think this will be a great lawnmower beer. I will almost definitely brew this a couple times a year for the warm months. If this turns out decent I think I will try Amylase in another style, I think a lite pale ale or a lite American wheat might be pretty good. Has anybody tried Amylase in another style?

I have done it on wheat, kolsch, cream ales, and ambers, to make a pseudo Amberbock and the like.

Here's my update - I made this twice. The first time I kegged the whole batch, the second time I kegged half and bottled half.

I thoroughly enjoyed it in the keg, but I just started drinking the half I bottled on 1/19/13 and holy cow is it good! The dryness mellowed out very nicely and the whole profile really melded together and gave this beer a nice, subtle touch of complexity. My plan now is to make a few batches in the Spring months and bottle all of it for the Summer months.
