Here's my Papazian Propensity Pilsner at 3 weeks in the conditioner at 70 degrees F and about 2 days into a lagering period in my cellar which right now is 48 degrees. So tonight I decided to see how the carbination did and sample the brew. On picking out a botte from the batch, I did as I always do, I held it up to the light to see that all looks good, no ring around the fill line and no junk floating on top. As this was a lighter brew than my usual make being a porter, I wanted to see how clear the bulb was going to shine through; was there haze or was my light bulb going to be easily seen. Instead, it was both! Take a look at the neck... And the line between the clear brew and the hazy brew had no fade! It was in no way diffuse! I thought it was a wear spot on the bottle but nope... it was inside! What's going on? Is this the start of what lagering does?? Settles out anything in the liquid? If you can't see it too well in the pix, take a look at the pix below, what you see in the glass is about the clarity of the lower half of the uncapped bottle. As you see, it carbed up quite well and has that slight hint of fruitiness. Had I been able to just skim off that first 3 inches I would have and meanwhile...it's gonna be tough to not drink this over the next 4 weeks!
