Quick question... I brewed the lefty blonde from Brewing Classic Styles and kegged it yesterday. The beer was very cloudy. The recipe says to lager for 1 month at 45-50. I'm a little lower than that in the keg. Do you think that will clear it up to the point that it's "generally very clear" per the style guidelines? If not is this a recipe problem (probably not I'm guessing since it's from brewing classic styles.

How long was it in the primary for? And yes after a month of lagering it should be clear. Let us know in a month how it turns out.
