I was at final gravity for ~2 days at 35 degrees and my "krausen" (one giant yeast raft with a bit of foam residue on top) remained.

I racked underneath it and got very clear beer. Hit it with gelatin. surprised to find 48 hours later after carbonation in my keg, the first draft was a yeasty dirty mess, the following draft was seriously clear and it only improves as time passes :

Thanks everyone. I'll leave this a few more days and then check for FG. I think I need to consider single stage fermenting in the future. I have some questions, but I'll start a separate thread on that topic rather than veer too far off topic on this one

Funny I am having the same with sa05 on my last batch. Never had that happen on my previous dozen brews using that yeast. I actually started a similar thread.
