If your kit beer is cloudy and won’t drop clear;
Most beers, given enough time will drop clear but factors that affect the time it takes are numerous. If you’ve used an extract kit to make your beer, many of these factors aren’t relevant because the malt extract producer has taken care of it.
- The main ingredient you add as a kit brewer is water. If your home water continually makes cloudy beers, consider using water from another source (bottled or maybe ask a friend who has a different source for some).
- If not the water, it could be an issue in fermentation. Ensure you follow the yeast instructions to give a healthy, vigorous ferment.
- If you’re still having an unwanted haze, you could consider finings after fermentation has subsided. There are plenty to choose from like gelatine or a vegan friendly alternative like Mangrove Jacks Liquid Beer Finings.
