Its just yeast with a very low flocculation > ie: it will stay in suspension once disturbed for a longtime afterwards.

"snowflake" says it all , it had been stuck on the bottom of the bottle(flat layer)
and once disturbed it peeled off in flakes.

Drink it, its good for ya` & many bars will even pour the dregs into a shot glass for you to enjoy> see link below.

I've seen the snowflakes in several bottles of Delirium Tremens. Never did figure out what it was but it tasted fine.

After the glasses with the snowflakes were poured, I upended the bottle and downed the dregs. It tasted great too. I am not afraid of yeast There's so much suspended in the beer anyway, what's the difference!

Never had these in the only bottle of Tremens and a few Noels. I have a Noel in the fridge for tonight (one of my favorite beers by far). Wondering if I found this thread as a life saver for when I see floaties tonight. Good to know it's ok if I do
A question to all those that are seeing this. How long is it in the fridge settling before pouring? I leave my bottle conditioned beers for a 24 hour minimum but try for 3 days.

I had 3 DT's last night with no floaties, but I think I get it a bit fresher than you guys.

All I've ever drank had floaties, including Nocturnum. This is sometimes after months of sitting still, as well...

Gentlemen,

I have never heard of Deliriums Tremens beer,
but I know where 'the term' came from,
an old W.C. Fields skit and here it is! ... Right now~~~! Look out~!




Thank you...

That's what a lot of settled yeast looks like. It breaks off in bigger clumps when it's been settled for a whole. I've seen it in a lot of bottle conditioned beer.

No chunks or Floaties in my Noel Christmas night, you guys getting chunks are pouring them carefully the same way you do a homebrew right?

Delirium Tremens is actually a real medical condtion. "Delirium tremens is a severe form of alcohol withdrawal that involves sudden and severe mental or neurological changes." source
