I brewed a Vienna Lager 1 month ago and hit all of my numbers. I fermented for around 3 weeks until it was cleared of diacetyl. I began lagering at 38 degrees 8 days ago, and I added gelatin 3 days ago to clear it quickly. It looked slightly clearer, but not completely clear. I kegged it tonight and force carbonated. I pulled a few pints and it is not clear. It does not taste bad, but it think it is yeasty. I’m a relatively new homebrewer, so I’m not certain. I realize that Viennas usually lager for weeks, but I thought it was suppose to clear with gelatin. Is the beer just too young? Will the flavor go away even though it’s off the yeast cake? Does anyone have any suggestions? Thank you in advance.
