I use weyermann pilsner for my base malt, it is the only base malt that i can get for now. It should be well modified for single infusion. But i still get massive amount of protein in the beer. It looks like a hefe. Its a simple pale ale(95%pilsner 5%melanoidin).Mash was 90min and boil was 90min.
Am i missing something?

A little more info could help:

1) How well did you vourlauf after mashing?

2) Did you get a really strong boil?

3) How fast did you chill your wort after boiling?

4) How long has it been at serving temperature?

Mashed 90mins at 67c
Had rolling boil for 90min
Chilled with immersion coil. 100c -> 18c about 20mins
Primary fermentation 3weeks-> secondary w DH 10day -> keged at 7c for 14days before picture.
vourlaufed about 3L, i have fine stainless filter in the bottom of mash tun, so i belive it should be enough.

It's the dry-hops..... 100% most certainly dry-hops causing the haze.

It may drop out and you'll get crystal beer if you keep it cold for a couple more weeks. But haze is to be expected with dry-hopping.

Protein rest is supposed to help with clarity. I am not much of an expert, but I usually use a 120 to 122 deg F protein rest for 20-30 minutes.
