Hi. After fermentation, at time of crash cooling you should close the vprv. This is due to the fact that when cooling the beer will drop in pressure. Eventually it will loose all carbonation with it ooen.
Not sure what you have done in the last 24hrs since your post but you should close the vprv and connect up the co2. In a day or 2 it should be ok. Dont stress that you left the butterfly valve open when clarifying. Although not ideal, any sediment that potentially made its way to the beer will settle again.
Thanks. I checked this morning and the sediment bottle looks full to the top. Is this normal? I have another brew, a summer ale, which I clarified last night but no defined line this morning. Any tips around that?
Dont panic about the sediment bottle being full. If you want, close the butterfly valve, wash out the contents, sanitise the bottle, top up with beer foam and connnect back up. Be sure to release the butterfly valve slowly once conmected back up.
Dont worry if there is no defined line. on your second brew. Just do you second clarification 12 or so hours after your first. Both brews will be fine.
