Coffee filter it.

It is corn oil from the corn in your UJ that carried over to the product jars (tails). As it sets, it coalesced and formed the “cloud” you see. A coffee filter will help reduce, or eliminate it. But, it does contribute to the “grain flavor”, so often times it isn’t worth worrying about, especially when you age on wood.

Being OCD can be a detriment.
