Ps Whoohooo first post!
Howdy and welcome...nice to have you here. Sounds like good advise.
I made a pilsner recently that was over the top in gravity/viscosity O.G. 1.069 ish.
When the fermentation was over and during the lager phase, It was not clearing
like I wanted it to. I put in polyclar as a clarifier but my technique also involved
the addition of 1.5 gallons of distilled water to reduce the viscosity...and I dry hopped
at the same time....
I put the water and hops into a corny keg and then carbonated the water thorougly
(I had concerns about oxygen from the water tainting the light colored pilsner beer)
Once the water was carbed up well, I transferred the pilsner from its secondary keg
into the tertiary keg containing carbed distilled water and the hop ball (Sterling). This really
worked well....perhaps somewhat retentive and some
extra work, but good end result.
