My guess is he used a Whirlfoc tablet and those are the proteins.

You use one full tablet for a 5 gallon batch. You are fine. I just brewed this beer a month ago and I had very similar looking beer at the bottom of my bucket when I cold crashed.

I'm brewing this up this weekend. My sister in law has requested a "Maple Cream Ale" for her birthday in mid-December, so I'm going to brew this up and add in a few ounces of concentrated maple extract right before bottling/kegging.

I went with the California Lager yeast, because I'm looking for a clean, crisp, highly-attenuated beer, with moderate flocculation so I can get it nice and clear with no haze. I'm going to primary it for 3 weeks, then cold-crash, hit it with some gelatin, then add the maple extract and carbonate it for a week or so. Can't wait to see how it turns out!

Brewed this last wednesday. Used popcorn (grains, not popped) and, although they seemed intact after mash, gravity was spot on. Airlock bubbled like crazy for a few days and there seems to still be action in that carboy as of now.

I forgot my irish moss so I will try a cold crash and gelatin combo on saturday (10 days primary, 3 days cold crash, keg for carbonation and to be consumed on the 10th).

Is it not necessary to mesh out with this recipe?
Thanks

Mash off is largely a matter of personal preference. People either do them or not. The argument against is usually about tannin extraction and the argument for is mostly about making the sugars more dissolute and easier to rinse from the grain bed.

IMO; this is a 90 min mash and the enzymes are probably pretty bored at the end because they have done their thing so, I do a mash off raise just for the solubility thing. It probably helps too if you have trouble holding temp in your MLT because of the "extra" 30 min at Sacchrification rest although I don't seem to be afflicted in that regard.

Any thoughts on adding some Falconer's Flight instead of Crystal? How do you think it would come out? I would keep it around the same IBUs.
