skim off the surface layer with first of all a kitchen sieve and then lay sheets of kitchen paper on the surface for half a second and remove quickly, may need to do this 5 or 6 times

WRONG - the kitchen paper grabs the surface layer - on and off in a flash - works like magic. I NEVER JOKE ABOUT BEER MAKING. I am about to make a pseudo SMASH with maris otter pale malt and cascade hops and on day 3 of fermentation I shall add a mashed up and strained through very fine muslin TIN OF GOOSEBERRIES in natural syrup.

Isn't all the hop goo supposed to settle out after a while. I would be a little worried about contaminating the beer.

Well, this post made me laugh during my morning reading, so thank you!

Gave it a little shake and most of it has settled out. Would cold crashing do the rest?

Just bottled the marris otter/cascade and the hop goo is 99 percent gone. Cold crashed for three days and a little swirl twice a day and it was perfect. I'll try my first bottle in a couple of weeks and let you guys know how it tastes. I will be bottling my pearl/cascade batch on Sundays and can't wait to compare the two.

Early taste of both tonight. Both pretty good. I prefer the marris, but they are both too hoppy for me. Next time I would eliminate the dry hop step.
