    I've had WLP400 finish up with three inches of krausen still sitting on top. I snuck in for a
    gravity reading and was at my anticipated FG, so I racked it. Within minutes the krausen had

    my wort chilling cycle, probably around 100 F. I want it in there for the vigorous primary

    All, I'm going to use a local wildflower honey in my Big Brew witbier. I purchased two pounds
