Its been a few more weeks and it certainly is helping. I think patience may be a tool that I will use more frequently in my brewing arsenal from now on.

Another week down in the fridge and boy o boy what a difference that has made. I think I've learned my lesson. Its SOOO much better now that it was even a week ago. I now need to leave the rest alone.

Thanks for posting this and all the replies everyone. I have a stepped up starter of this going right now for my "Devilish Golden". I noticed the same thing with this yeast trying to get it to flock for the first step. Didn't work so I had to go to a bigger container. It really took a good 24 hours in the fridge to drop. I have a nice size layer of this to use now. Hopefully it doesn't rain tomorrow and I can brew!

Curious, what recipe did you use? I'm going to use one pretty close to the extract version of this

Well, after letting this sit for 2 months at room temp and 1 month in the fridge, this beer is crystal clear, delicious as all get out, and strong enough to knock me on my butt without ever giving a hint of being 9.3% ABV. I'm planning on saying its "ready" in January. We'll see if I have the self-control not to kick them back before then. I definitely learned that patience is a very good thing for our brews.

My recipe was simply mashing 11 lbs of belgian pilsner 2-row at 152 for 90 mins and then adding 1 lb of corn sugar to the boil 75 mins into it (90 min boil). I am not sure what the extract conversion would be. Super simple recipe though. I hopped it with 1 oz styrian goldings for 60 mins of the boil. It is very similar to Duvel. I had a 2 pint starter with wlp 570 and probably could have gone a little bigger. If you are thinking about getting into AG, this is a very easy and very tasty recipe to do it with. Best wishes with your brews.
