Cloudy huh? I'm brewing this soon and may add whirlfloc. Just picked up all five hops today and got got 15# pilsner in a trade.

Could I try oats for mouthfeel or is this.a bad idea? I am fine breaking German purity laws.

I love this beer. SA's finest

As it has aged, the cloudiness has gone down, and the hop flavor has dropped some. If you could stand it, you might want to let this age in the keg for about 6 weeks to get the flavors to "ripen".

I'm making it again next weekend. It's that good.

ETA: I'm blaming my noobiness at decoction mashing for the cloudiness. It has great flavor if you can get around the fact it looks like pineapple juice.

This time I'm doing an infusion mash for 70 minutes to see if this clears up the cloudiness.

Any updates on this? Did the decoction mash cause the cloudiness, or did it just need more time?

Thank you -

So I went ahead and brewed this with a Double Decoction mash -
131 - 20 Minutes
142 - 20 Minutes
152 - 60 minutes

Here are my changes, the brew store didn't have the same hop selection, but it was fun to swap a few. Although, my Alpha Acid % are a bit higher than OP's.

It's only 6 weeks old, it's in the Keg and it tastes fantastic and fresh right now. It's cloudy, but young, so if it clears up I will update the thread.
