Newbie to the word of brewing here in need of a little help please. I have a couple of questions I can't find the answer to first off. Cloudy beer I have brewed a Coopers dark ale from a tin kit it was started on Saturday 29th Feb 2020. I used a spray malt enhancer as advised by Coopers. It brewed very well started off with OG 1040 and now has a reading 1010 smells and tastes great even if flat and warm lol. The issue I have is it does not look to be clearing at all. Is there anything I can do to speed up the clearing of the beer? I want to bottle next weekend but I don't want to bottle very cloudy beer. Please help a struggling beer brewing virgin.
Second question: How long should I leave the brewing vessel on a heat pad for? I'm using a pad as we don't have anywhere with a constant temp. Is it for the whole fermentation of just the first couple of days? I can't seem to find the answers to the two burning questions. Can anyone please help? Thanks John
