    I was just having the exact same problem And I had to move my secondary fermenter. I carried it
    Into another room and about 95% of all the floating hops sank straight to the bottom.

    Did this work? I'm thinking if trying it on Sn under hopped chimay clone I made

    Was trying to track down some Pliny the younger to no avail, but found Hopocalypse at Proofd on
    the square in Sonoma. I think it's the best beer I've ever had. Stunning complex hop aroma and

    to leave town for a couple of days so I couldn't control the temperature. So it basically
    fermented at 72...
