Yeah, I figured the higher ABV may be effecting it. I used White Labs Belgian Golden Ale Yeast (WLP570). I picked that specifically because it *should* be better with bigger beers.

Ok. Thank you. I'm sorry, I know I am a noob at this. Just so I am clear, when you say pasteurize, you suggesting that I re-boil the beer, cool (obviously), pitch new yeast, and sugar, then bottle?
