Murky? As in cloudy? Or just Dark?

Which recipes did you use?

Most of mine have been clear, though somewhat darker. Even my lagers are darker. (Though my last lager is still cloudy, but it's only a month or two old, so that won't be ready for a while.)

Mine are usually murky until they've been in the bottle for a couple of days. Then they clear up quickly.

Hey neighbor, murky beer still tastes good. I would hold off on the enzyme and just let them sit as long as you can stand it. After bottling, let them sit in the fridge further if still cloudy. Murky or not, you still are going to have a nice beer.
