Floaties - Am I the only one

Postby Urotsukidoji » Mon Feb 11, 2019 7:52 pm

that is kind of grossed out by this?

I had 2 cans of Flying Monkeys Sparklepuff Triple IPA, and both were just packed with big fat white snowflake floaties. It looked like I had poured spoiled cream into my beer.
I know they are harmless..... well, at least I think, but man what a turnoff! The beer itself tasted fine, but I will not but another can.

Usually I don't mind, but I had my first Sparklepuff yesterday and it was very off putting. You are right about the beer tasting ok. I just never experienced that many floaties in a beer before.

When it comes to hazy NE IPAs I have taken to rolling the can/bottle gently before opening and/or agitating it before pouring last few ounces, much like one would a wheat beer. I think it better integrates any sediment so there are less floaties and more generalized haziness. Sometimes the floaties persist.

Or shake it vigorously a day or two before drinking.
