I tasted my first all grain batch (a IPA with some toasted two row and dry hopped with cascade and centennial ) yesterday and thought it was a little off. I've brewed this as a partial mash before and this time it was a lot more bitter then it should have been. Upon opening the keg to retrieve my hop bag I noticed a nice layer of ice chunks on the top of my beer. Come to find out its pretty much 1/3 frozen. I'm letting it warm up inside for a few hours so hopefully everything will work out.

Has this happened to anyone else? What can I expect with the freezing and thawing of it?
