Hi I was brewing this but with some NZ variation on the ingredients
Everything was great, I tasted the hydro samples and it was very hoegaarden'y I was quite excited.
We have had a bit of a cold snap and I thought the yeast had stalled since it got stuck on 1016. still looking and tasting great though, although it seemed to have a really large amount of 'stuff' still floating around.
I gave it a little shake, moved it into a much warmer area and let it sit for a few days.
when I took the next hydro I was surprised that most of the floating stuff had dissapeared and so did the taste. All the hoegaarden flavour dissapeared with the floating stuff.
I learned from my local brew shop that the wheat beer type yeasts are meant to suspend the 'stuff' so it was in fact fine, if just a little high on the hydro.
Any idea's what went wrong? Why would moving it into a warmer place destroy it? I want to try this recipe again.
temperature data, before it was moved is available if anyone considers it relevant.
