i made this earlier this year with brown ale yeast due to availability and i was very, very happy. it was unremarkable 2-4 weeks after bottling but really developed over the next 2-3 months and has been a real crowd pleaser.

I did an altered version of this, and like you said, it took a while to find it's footing. Didn't even carb for 4 weeks. Now it's the perfect breakfast tailgate beer!

This is a great beer, brewed it back in September and I think its at it's prime now. This one needs a month at the minimum to condition IMO. Almost everyone who tried it has really enjoyed it!

Mine has been carbing for a little more than two weeks now. I cracked one at a week and a half. It was REALLY hot. Couldn't taste anything past the ethanol except a hint of maple. Hoping it cools off in time for New Years.

Default Brew not clairifying


So I brewed this about two weeks ago. . . one week in the primary, and another in the secondary. . . . the beer is still really cloudy. Anyone have trouble like this or am I being impatient, I have thought about adding a bit of gelatin to clarify.

Thoughts?

Uhm maltodextrin is an unfermentable sugar, whereas brown sugar is a fermentable sugar. You cannot substitute brown sugar for it and achieve the same results, because the brown sugar will ferment, resulting in a higher ABV% and a drier beer than if you had used maltodextrin.


If your fermentation is finished, and you have access to a fridge, I would suggest cold crashing your beer for a few days to encourage flocculation.
