An update. After 10 days, had a few bottles of the beer.
It is wonderful. Thanks to everyone who has helped.
One question: at bottling time, the sampling I took was crystal clear. Was amazing. The first bottle I drank, the clarity
was just as good. The second bottle was very hazy (yes, I poured them both correctly). Looking through the rest of the
bottles, it seems that there is the gamut - from very hazy to extremely clear. Most have some sediment floating around in
them - even the very clear ones.
I was careful to mix my priming sugar in well before bottling - trying to take care not to aerate, to the best of my ability.
Any suggestions as to what happened here?
