totally normal, and is the exact reason you are supposed to drink homebrew out of a glass and avoid pouring the last little bit into the glass.

Great! I have a profound law that all "good" beers must be drank from a glass anyway...(whether or not mine is good is up for discussion.)

The sediment is mostly yeast, just like the bottom of your fermentor. Just pour off the beer while avoiding getting the sediment in your glass and you'll be golden.

And the gas it produces can be recycled and power the planet.

Indeed. The B vitamins in the sediment will help replace those lost via the alcohol consumption.

Call me crazy, but I pour most of it into a glass, then chug the last oz from the bottle. Then I get all the beer, and a clear one as well.

Me, too! For the first few bottles, at least. After that, . . . I just pour and chug
