Sediment is one of those areas in beer that is pretty subjective depending on who is doing the drinking. I don't mind it, but I generally try and avoid taking in a lot of sediment. Just doesn't do it for me.
Depends on how much there is. I once got a can of Focal Banger from The Alchemist that weighed a lot more than the others, the reason being it was literally half sediment. That ruined it for me. Other than that, I embrace it. I pour the beer half way, swirl, then pour the rest. I notice subtle differences when I do not do that. Or, am I just playing tricks on myself...??
I've never had a beer with floaties I didnt like..unless the floaties were cigarette butts
NO Way!! It's my favorite part of a good craft beer.
First time I noticed the sediment was in a bottle of Coopers Sparkling Ale, I'd brought in Peckhems in Edinburgh. I was a little concerned, as having travelled in Australia and learnt that it's the best brewery over there. So my initial excitement of finding the bottle quashed, I did some research and learnt it's natural.. so just either leave the bottle upright for a few days and be careful when you pour to leave the last 5 to 10mm in the bottle.. or if your like me, and think that's just a waste, just store the bottle & pour it as it comes!
Well, at beer fests it really sucks that people pouring from the bottles give you your sample and it's the last yeasty ass pour of the bottle. I don't appreciate that. I just dump it out in front of them and ask for a fresh pour.
I don't care if a little yeast is in there but, it does make a difference if you just get that last swilly pour. It's not the same beer you would be experiencing minus all the yeast at the bottom.
Some beers, depending on the level of yeast, I try not to pour it into well poured glasses.
Never. Man up
Nope. I'll even swirl up the bottom and dump it into my glass, depending on the style (mostly with wits & hefes). Probably the healthiest part of the beer.
Drink exclusively DH's Plead the 5th. Then you don't have to worry, because that cement at the bottom ain't going anywhere!
It doesn't bother me, but as it can add an unpleasant bitterness I try to avoid pouring it and let what does get into the glass settle. Worst I've ever seen was actually from a growler, the last pour looked like this:
I know a couple of people who swear that the sediment will cause gas and bloating like a dying pack mule. I do not share the sediment....er...ahh...sentiment. It is a beer that can live longer and mature in character and complexity. Some Belgians are excellent with a good stir of yeast in them----unless flaked.....sign the beer has done gone south and on it's last legs. I got some sediment from a growler of Delirium Noel that was excellent in the bottle. Added depth and better mouthfeel in my humble opinion.
Don't worry, it was only Tongue in Cheek.
Sediment is not a problem, at all. Kinda cool all those little floaties.
depends. usually no for me. in certain cases (Hefes) i prefer to get the yeast in, as many other probably do.
besides, how would we ever drink homebrew
I request extra yeast floaties.
First time I saw yeast, I thought WTF is that? Now, after some reading, it doesn't bother me but I do try to avoid aggressive pours on bottle conditioned beers.
WTH is that?
Count me among those who drink the sediment separately, as a shot of vitamin B. IMO, having the yeast in suspension in the beer muddles the taste considerably (save for in styles like Hefeweizens and wits).
Love sediment. Taste great and put hair on your chest. Don't fear the beer............. Sediment
I love holding a bomber of Hop Stoopid or some other yeasty favorite up to the light and seeing all the wonderful little bits of sediment slowly swirling around at the bottom. And I always delight in drinking every last cloudy drop. It's natural, after all. To me, sediment is usually a sign of substance and depth. I've never had a sediment-heavy beer which lacked flavor.
That said, I don't always idealize cloudiness over clarity, and can appreciate a crystalline transparency as well.
It's yeast sediment, a TON of it.
From Tired Hands? Which beer? Wow....
No, that's just the glass I was using, this was at home from a growler from elsewhere.
No, it's to be expected. Heady looks pretty gross in a glass though.
Seidment doesn't usually bother me
Reminds me. I forget what beer out there in this world, but they advertise that you slow pour the beer into one glass leaving a little bit of beer in the bottle. You then take the bottle and swoosh it around to break up the yeast. Then pour it into a shot glass. When you are done enjoying the non-yeasty portion, they expect you to enjoy the shot of the yeasty. Somebody can help me out with identifying this beer.
Yep. That gets a 1-2 for appearance in my book. If I know a beer has a thick cake in it, then I'll let it sit long enough to compact so I can avoid it on the pour. If the yeast is very fine and not in big pieces, then it doesn't bother me.
