Why is my double IPA so damn murky? I've filtered out as much as I can but it isn't enough. I was going to bottle, but don't really want to bottle something that looks like this, unless it will clear up.

Wow.

Process? Recipe? How old is the beer?

Wait. You're not talking about beer, right?
You're talking about beer. That could have been a whole lot more fun.

Essentially this. My hop schedule was slightly different and I dry hopped with 1oz simcoe, 1oz centennial and 1oz mosaic.
It's been 3 weeks and some days.

Did you leave it in primary the entire time, what temp was it fermented at, did you rack out ALL the liquid including trub???

You could throw it in a secondary with gelatin for a few days before bottling.

I moved it to the secondary after two weeks. It was at about 68 degrees. I tried to get as little of the trub as possible, I'm guessing some got through.

Will it clear up if I bottle now? I really don't feel like sanitizing 50 bottles again.

Yeah if its trub or yeast it will settle. Do you think it could be starch from incomplete conversion during the mash? You can test with iodine if you've got it.
