If what you’re seeing are small brown partials that look like the candy “Nerds” floating around in the beer, not floating to the top and/or dropping to the bottom but floating/drifting in the beer (so its very hard to it avoid transferring it when rack) then I too have experience those a time or two when it’s high proteins grain bills fermented at high temps. My theory is that with ales that are pitched into and fermented at high temps they still have something suspended in them my guess would be proteins and when they are crashed or cooled off in the keg they coagulate and cling together similar to the way a fining will cause them to. Something like, its hot break but it was still too hot to, well, break until after fermentation and it’s chilled…
But it sounds like there’s a lot I’ve only ended up with a few (2-3) partials in every third or forth pint.
