Title: Two-toned beer?
Post by: cfleisher on July 16, 2012, 03:57:28 pm
I've got a Brett beer that has a dark-rum colored rim round the top with a cloudy, amber body. The ring is about 3/4 inch thick and fairly distinct. Has anyone seen this before? What is it? Here's a picture:

That's just the yeast slowly dropping out of suspension.

Yup.  Give it a few days, it'll all drop out and look like the beer on the top.

Whew. That's a relief. My other beers tend to clarify quicker than this, but I've been told that Brett is a slower acting yeast. Thanks.
