Default Mr beer

I have a question I have a mr beer kit and this is my second batch. I used 3.3 lbs hopped malt extract (muttons) and 1lb dry malt in my 2 gallon fermenter. I boiled the dry malt with 12 cups of water then boiled my hop pellets every 15 for a 60 min boil then i added the liquid malt extract after steeping . This is day 6 and it's really cloudy is that ok? 3.3 lbs

I bet if you drilled a hole in that cap, and inserted an airlock, it would work alot better. I had a Mr Beer keg years ago and did that........

Go to midwest supplies, you can get a nice 5 gallon starter kit.
