Default Can Someone tell me what happened?

OK so my second batch ever got done and after a 3 week of Bottle Conditioning I sat down to have a brew. It was a Cream Ale and it seemed to be OK but when I cracked the first one and poured it I got this...


The first Pic is most of the beer that came out, but the second pic is what was at the bottom of the bottle. Looks like trub, but I can not understand what happened and how I got that much at the bottom of the bottle. The beer tastes good and so far everyone likes it, but almost all the bottles have this problem (although this is the most extreme case)

Any ideas as to what might have happened?

Thanks

Um, besides being sideways it looks like the yeast sediment we ALWAYS get in bottle conditioned beer, be they homebrew of commercial.

Are you not aware that bottle conditioned beers have sediment in it, to one level or another?

It was in Primary for 3 weeks.

I am fully aware of the "Sediment" but his seemed like an extreme case. I mean that is a lot of gunk at the bottom of the bottle. The first batch I brewed had sediment but it was no where near as extreme as this. Are you suggesting that this is a normal amount of sediment?

Hard too say if it is mormal with it all mixed up like that. You are supposed to pour slowly and and soon as you see a little trub coming out, stop pouring leaving maybe 1/4" in the bottle.

That is what I did. The first picture is the beer I drank, the second picture was what was left in the bottle.

I guess I was just not prepared for that much being at the bottom. Like I said the first batch come out so good with minimal amounts that when I cracked this one, it just seemed extreme. Sounds like this might be normal.
