Title: Full Keg Purge & Effects on Beer
Post by: Ellismr on April 29, 2017, 03:41:44 pm
I recently read an article on full keg purge procedure on experimental home brewing as one of the IGOR's.  So I performed the full purge by filling my clean keg with starsan and pushing it out with CO2.  I then attached a stainless steel racking cane and carboy cap to my carboy and pushed cold crashed IPA to the keg.  I have ball lock kegs and adjusted the PRV on top to vent as the beer was pushed in.  The beer coming from the carboy was clear in the line but after carbonation my IPA looks like a new england IPA.  Does anyone have any ideas on what could've caused this?  It tastes great and was dry hopped with 2 oz citra but as I stated earlier it was clear in the transfer line.

Cheers

Did you chill it? Chill haze?

CHill haze would normally be my first ask, but you said yocold crashed the IPA, so I'm guessing you racked cold? Does it clear up when it warms up?

Chill haze is what I would think but I used clarity firm when I pitched with WLP002.  Cold crashed for 2 days.  I get a little haze from the dry hop but I cannot see through the glass.  Just stumped.

As it warms it clears a little bit but it much
