My 2nd-ever batch of beer, a BB Weizenbier that I brewed 7/27, has done something recently that I can't explain.
For background, this kit uses Munton's (?) Amber and Wheat LME's with Munton's dry yeast.
Every bottle of this I've had since 3 weeks after bottling has been what I'd expect from a wheat beer - cloudy. Also, I never hit the target FG, which I've subsequently discovered Munton's yeast is notorious for. Therefore, the brew was a little "sweet". I had always chilled the beer for 1-3 days before drinking.
Fast forward to last night: Opened a bottle from this batch that had been in the fridge for ~ 3 weeks. Wow! The beer was clear as a filtered commercial beer. I could read through the glass. Also, the "sweetness" of the beer seemed to have diminished.
For the sake of science, I drank that beer and opened another just to be sure it wasn't a fluke.
Question is this: What caused the change in clarity/taste? Cold-crashing from being in the fridge longer? Normal aging of the beer?
I really liked how the beer developed, so I would like to put my finger on what exactly happened so I can be sure to repeat.
