Unless your doing a hefewiezen OR have already used something like brewbrite in the boil of an AG, I wouldSomething seems abit askew there Kev. Thought a hefe would lend itself to a tolerable amount of cloudiness. Anywho,however.....
Would a crash chill help before kegging? There's a few threads here on AHB about crash chilling, or you could go to secondary but I am not a fan of that unless you are an experianced brewer.Infection issues etc.
From my experiance when Ive had a dirty beer Ive left it on the primary / yeast cake for an extra week then chilled it down before transfer to keg. After that, if it tastes good who cares if its a little dirty?
this happened to me the other week. Cold conditioned at 2deg for a few days, Polyclar in the fermenter prior to racking, but the valve on my filter broke so I didn't filter, resulting in Polyclar going in the serving keg (and noticably floating around after force carbing). It took a few days to settle now its clear as day. So if the serving keg isn't going to be moved around I can't see a problem IMHO.Besides which, you don't want polyclar in your serving keg........blech
I have been using brewbright for a while and it is absolutely the ducks nuts. I have been a filterer, now there's no need.Lurve it as well, but nowadays I use it in the form of BrewBright in the kettle.
How much you been using and when do you add it?The main point about polyclar in the keg is that it shouldn't be in the keg. The idea is to use it in cold conditioning beer (as with the instructions) and THEN after settling out, transfer the clear beer off the lees into the keg.
Lurve it as well, but nowadays I use it in the form of BrewBright in the kettle. However if using it as stand-alone Polyclar at cold conditioning time, it should remain in the vessel not the keg, as stated.
