Maybe it was a single 3lb yeast. Like a Chihuahua-sized yeast:

It's not even Krausen....the site I found it stated that it was a massive yeast colony, so basically the biggest yeast raft ever!

Sometimes my fruit beers can have an over carbed taste/twang to them when the are still green. I am assuming you are making a nice easy poor and leaving the setiment in the bottles behind?

Zalf yes I am leaving the sediment in the bottle. I am currently reading The Complete Joy of Home Brewing 3rd Edition. I have decided not to brew another batch until I get threw the intermediate chapters. So with that being said I'm half way complete with the book.

How much of that 3 lbs of extract did you use to prime your bottles? I am thinking that might be the main factor.
