The existing answers are hard to add to. However, making sure you end up with minimal sediment in your fermenter in the first place goes a long way in clarifying the beer. Such as using hop bags or a boil screen to keep pellet hop gunk out. Also the use of clarifying agents such as whirfloc in the boil and using a whirpool will all contribute to the wort ...

I've had big problems with too much trub (sediment) in my first couple of batches but now that I use an auto-syphon it isn't really an issue anymore. Hop pellets definitely will contribute to the sediment residing at the bottom of a batch but an auto-siphon is extremely helpful as you can use it to avoid sucking directly off of the bottom of the carbon, thus ...

You can also add gelatin to the batch before bottling. Our will cause they sediment to coagulate and settle. Then bottle using cane and a racking tip to ensure less debris. I had the same issue as well.

Grats on your first brew! Ultimately you need to draw beer from above the trub (sediment). If your fermentor is designed for fermenting and has a spigot, it should have an adjustable arm you can turn to draw beer from above the trub. If it's a bottling bucket you can prop up the bucket a couple inches while it's settling to get trub to settle away from ...

Could try pushing the CO2 out of that beer and re-presurizing over a longer period of time. I do 24 psi for 48 hours. Could try that to get new gas in your beer.

Could it be an issue with a poorly cleaned keg? I've noticed off flavors when I've gotten lazy with cleaning seals / poppets etc. before. Otherwise time in a keg does tend to mellow out the flavor, but if you are tasting keg I'm not sure it will mellow too much more than it is now.

You shouldn't taste your keg. If you taste something that shouldn't be there, maybe it's a sanitizer or something that was previously in the keg? For beers I do, I think CO2 adherence to the beer improves with time spent in the keg. CO2 forced in doesn't seem to absorb as well as CO2 absorbed over several weeks in a cold fridge. Without knowing your ...

I don't know if any bakers yeast that is tollerant to much more than 5% Alcohol By Volume. Hypothetically: A fermentable solution can fully attenuate in a matter of hours with enough adapted yeast and oxygen. But will never exceed the ABV tollerance of the strian.
