I have never had cloudy beer 'til I brewed a batch and added two
teaspoons of gypsum (just to see what would result) at the start
of the boil. The result was cloudy beer with a asprin-like
aftertaste -- yeak! After 4 weeks in the bottle, the aftertaste
is starting to soften and the beer is becoming more translucent,
but not clear. Also, I follow very sanitary procedures.

This is the *last* time that I add gypsum to my beer.
