Just a note to WLP644 users - was very excited about a recent batch, did a maris otter/citra SMaSH with WLP644. Sadly after fermentation the wort was
extremely cloudy, like a Hefe, and barely cleared at all after 3 days in the fridge. I went ahead and bottled anyway, only reading later that 644
is a low flocculator, and that "some strains take 2 weeks at 40F to completely clear." Dang. While I did not control ferm temp very well, and there
could be other factors, next time (and there will be a next time; this yeast smelled absolutely delicious after pitching), I will let it cold crash until
clear or a good approximation thereof.
Just for reference, t tasted and smelled absolutely delicious, but there was substantial yeast bite.
For any wiser than I: advice to salvage a cloudy already bottled batch beyond letting it sit in the fridge a week or two once carbed?
