I can see it. Low mash temp, good temp control for fermentation, healthy yeast

Thanks for the reply. Should have also noted my OG was 1.037. Puts me at an ABV estimate of 4.6%. that works

Also, my efficiency was great today for some reason. BS predicted 1.041, I hit 1.047. Not complaining, though.
Here it is- clearest into-fermenter beer I remember brewing. I did have to alter the recipe just a little. the LHBS was out of Crystal 10 and I didn't think about replacements so I used Crystal 40, cut it back to a quarter pound and upped the Vienna to .75 pounds. We'll see how it turns out. Thanks for the recipe, Bier, and I'll try to remember to report in a week or two! Kyle
man that is a LOT clearer than mine after primary. here is mine:

Aussie, that's way cloudy then the majority of my beers turn out. You said that was after primary? My photo was going into primary, post-boil. I'll be kegging probably today or tomorrow, and will update. So far the airlock bubbles smell great! Kyle

Well I have to say turned this one over in 16 days from brew day to drinking and draining the keg for my son birthday was a huge hit with both sides of family. Thanks for a great beer. I'll be doing this again for sure.

Yeah this is after racking to keg from primary. Looked much clearer from brew kettle but I used refractometer at that stage. Just poured a test last night after being crash cooled and on c02 for 5 days, still really cloudy. Hope it clears up in the next few weeks for a neighborhood BBQ.

Just brewed 15 gal of this last night. One of the smoothest brew days yet! Very easy. Only problem is my efficiency was up to almost 90%! Beersmith estimates 6% abv. Might this be too much for the style? How would it affect flavor? I've never had this problem, usually its the other way- less efficient. Is there anything I can do at this point?

My last try came out like 1.004 too. I think I am mashing a bit lower than I think. The beer was tasty but is quite thin.

I had the same "problem", if you want to call it that. I got 88% efficiency when I normally get around 75% at best. I mashed a few degrees high at about 154. But my hydro sample was delicious so I am glad I didnt use any extra top off water to bring the OG down. My advice would be to just roll with it this time around, see how you like it, and then take notes so you can make adjustments for the next go round. You know there's going to be another! Cheers
