Homemade bitters turns milky

Recommended Posts

When I add my homemade walnut bitters to a cocktail that contains water (via ice or soda) it turns milky.  What is the fix?

It's  may be chill haze due to the fats in the walnuts. https://homedistiller.org/wiki/index.php/Chill_Filtering

How to tell: If you warm it up and it goes away then it's the fats hazing over. Like SickFloss said, either up your ABV or chill filter. Chill filtering may effect the flavor some. Not a fun decision.

Yeah give us some more technical info here there some gnarly chemists round these parts. Whats your ABV? When you say "put it in a cocktail with water in it" do you mean a few dashes or make a cocktail out of the bitters itself?
