Proper assessment can take a few pints (per night)
Yes it does
It’s a great beer. I tapped it last night so still assessing the finer points. BB: Are you fining the beer? If so, what are you using? My clarity is usually not that good when the keg is 'new' and I would love to solve that issue. Share your secrets!
My normal process in to transfer to keg, then cold crash and hold cold under CO2 pressure for ~2 weeks. I pull a cloudy pint to clear the line, fine with gelatin, and results the next day are what you see here.
Keep in mind I use a floating dip tube on this keg. The one keg I have that does not have a floating dip tube takes a couple more days to clear to the bottom.
I also use Bry-97 yeast in 90% of my beers.Gelatin fining process
Using this method I don’t introduce air into the keg.
1. Cold crash beer to induce chill haze
2. Use 1 tsp gelatin in 2/3 cup of water.
3. Let stand 15 min or so (I usually forget it’s in there so this becomes more like 30 min+).
4. Put it in the microwave for 15 sec.
5. Continue the 15 sec bursts until ~150*F (usually 4 bursts).
6. Pour the mixture into a clean, sanitized 2L plastic bottle.
7. Squeeze the air out and put on a carbonator cap.
8. Pressurize the bottle with a bit of CO2 until it pops back into shape (very short bursts required).
9. PULL THE KEG PRV
to depressurize the keg!
10. Place a clean, sanitized jumper on the bottle
11. Invert the bottle
12. Connect the jumper to the gas in post
13. Allow nearly all the liquid to drain into the keg
14. Quickly disconnect it before it all empties into the keg.
