My first time making anything, so this might be an incredibly stupid question.
I used this recipe
1 cake, compressed yeast
5 pounds, sugar
2 ounces, sassafras root
1 ounce, hops or ginger root
2 ounces, juniper berries
4 gallons, water
1 ounce, dandelion root
2 ounces, wintergreen
With some slight changes, but the instructions were pretty lacking. After watching a few videos and talking to people, I gave it a shot.
The root beer is in bottles but there is a layer of a cloudy dust on the bottom.
Im assuming this is from nit straining it properly.
So my question
How do you go about straining so this doesn't happen?
(or, you know, is there anything else that may have done this?)
