Brewing a belgian. Over a week and have hit F.G but still have big krausen and yeast is not settling out. Wait it out? O.G 1070.
Should add that I made a 1 liter starter of wlp550. Did I under pitch.

I would wait it out a bit longer.

If you do not want to wait it out, and you have hit your FG, then you can always rack from under the krausen.

I edited my post. I think I give it more time as there's still to much yeast in suspension to rack. Was just wondering if I under pitched and should add more yeast to finish?

What size batch?

I just read a tip on that strain. Raise the temp to ~75 F for the final week.
