I recently brewed two batches of an english bitter. Both were AG.One was brewed using my gas stove, the other was brewed using a newly puchased fryer. Both went well. They were conditioned in kegs and then cooled. I tapped the stove top one and everything was great. Nice clear color nice head. The other one looks like mud. I even poured two pitchers worth to see if maybe it was some type of sediment. The only difference was the fryer.

Did I let the wort get to hot with the fryer. It's my only thought.

Could be a scorching issue with the wort.

If there are no particulates in the beer and everything else is the same, it seems likely to me that you scorched it on the turkey fryer.

The real question is, does it taste all right?

Were both full boils?

There are a lot of factors at work when it comes to clarity. Hot break, cold break, vorlauf effectiveness, finings used...etc.

I'd say any beer...given enough time in the chiller, will clear up.
