The yeast may or may not be dead, but the sugar should still have stayed in solution unless
your FG was ridiculously high.

I'd think it would be something other than the sugars, yeah. Dextrose is really soluble - did
you mix it in boiling water before adding? If not, maybe I could see it falling out of
solution. Maybe yea...

Since this thread started, I've learned that time = clarity. A couple of extra weeks in bottles
produces very clear beer other than a slight chill haze, and two weeks in the fridge gives

Make sure to give a long 90 minute boil with all that pilsner. No big deal working at 5 gallons
instead of 5.5, it will just have a bit higher ABV. You'll do well to have a yeast starter at
that ABV t...

It all depends on how long you had it fermenting before you moved it down there. If more than
3-5 days, primary fermentation could have been just about done. Often, the primary fermentation
