Default Bottles have a small amount of strange particulates (brownish blobs)

Hi all,

hope I can get away with an Apfelwein thread here.

This batch I made was the only one i've let clear for an extra two weeks (As I was on vacation). And it cleared like no other apfelwein ive made.

So after bottling and waiting another few weeks I tried it. Now the first couple of bottles I found this brownish reddish bugger looking things at the bottom of the bottles.

I thought maybe it was just bad cleaning by myself but after the 5th one I still find small amounts of this weird stuff in it. The apfelwein tastes great, no problem. But I can give this to friends if its got this in. How can I stop this in the future?

Growler: Cran-Lemonwein
Primary: Ghetto Cider (Shur-Fine)
Primary: Chocolate Oatmeal Stout
Primary: Welches Grape Juice
Secondary: Pail Ale (American)
Secondary: Chocolate Oatmeal Stout
Bottled: Ghetto Cider (Roundys)
