This damn yeast won’t clear from my beer. I brewed it 6+weeks ago I fermented it out completely and even gave it a good 2 weeks in secondary. I then crash cooled to 36deg and it has been sitting there. The stuff just wont drop out WTF I really want to serve this beer on OCT 30th should I drop the temp to 33 or what?
Any suggestions?
JJ

Gelatin seems to help.

Different water chemistry? Old malt?

other things to concider since that is a highly flocculant yeast

I wouldn't, but only because I'd be worried that the liquid out tube might get clogged. Most people use it in secondary.

same water, same malt I always use. Not old or anything. I guess I could put it back in a carboy and add gelatin. But it is carbed, Hmmmm, what to do, what to do?

My pint glasses have already been ordered and are on the way!! All 288 of them!
I just can't serve it cloudy. This beer is going to be served to tens if not hundreds of millions of dollars of investment capital at a "Meet the entrepreneurs" event; I have pitched my company to a panel of judges now its time for a taste test of my products, and for what ever reason this batch just won’t clear. There MUST be another way.... I need some help. Can I de-gas it and filter to .5 micron then add gelatin???? Come on guys, help a brother out
Any other suggestions??
JJ
