Two lager questions for the wisdom of the masses....
I brewed my second lager over the weekend (Czech Pilsen) and I just realized that I forgot to add the Irish moss to the boil. I was shooting for a really clear, crisp beer for SWMBO (Czech heritage) and am wondering if I am dwarfed. Not worried about the taste just the clarity.
To empty out the carboy to brew the pils, I bottled up my Munchener Helles on Friday. I had used the WLP-800 and had it in primary for 6 weeks. The "problem" was that the yeast never really settled down into a cake. I probably lost about a gallon of volume because the yeast was floating in the bottom 6 inches of the carboy. Kind of looked like seaweed balls. Any ideas what may have gone on with that one?
