I've brewed a honey ale using cascade and spaaz hops and a pilsner yeast. I've just bottle it...this last Monday I believe.
I just took a glance at the bottles to see how they're clearing up (the bottles are brown mind you) and when held to the light I notice a blackish, very fine silt-like substance clinging to the sides of the bottles in the slightly embossed floral embellishments. If I tilt the bottles the silt substance moves but then mostly returns, but if I twist the bottle like a wrench back and forth, the silt breaks away and slowly settles.
This is only my 2nd beer, and the first being a stout I may just have just not been able to see this before. There is sediment in the bottom of the bottles, as would be expected.
Is this "clingy" silt normal? Could it just be the yeast still ever so slowly settling? Or, is this just a natural clearing up process? Thanks for y'all's expertise!
