This was my first time using Safbrew 33. I had heard it was a pretty straight forward yeast. But I had some issues with it.
Fermentation looked fine. But it never cleared (after 3 weeks in primary). Fermented just below 15C.
When I racked it to a keg I noticed a lot of dead yeast on the sides of the primary. Very little yeast cake - so most is still suspended.
It did not look like re-fermentation. It has a yeasty character, but not enough for me to think it is contaminated.
At this point I’m hoping it clears out in the keg at a cold temperature. I can definately give it a few weeks like that to see what happens.
I just have never had a beer not clear like this. Wondering if anyone else has had issues with S-33.
