comment US-05 Fermentation Temperatures / Top Cropping
stupid follow up question, but when the yeast is krausening, the cells are actually metabolizing the sugars right? If I'm removing a few hundred billion cells from the fermentation, why doesn't that stress the remaining yeast, particularly if they have finished multiplying? Or is the krausening stage when multiplication is at its highest?

+1 on this. no reason to secondary unless you are dry-hopping or are obsessed with crystal clear beer.

comment May be too much carbonation on the way
@brewchez, this beer is growing on me. A few BJCP's in my HB club actually said it was a very close representation of the style. What throws/threw me off was an intense passion fruit/sweet nose that doesn't come through as much in the taste. Overall though, I think this will be a great beer for the summer. Not typically a huge fruit fan, but this might be a good style to experiment with some other fruits. Mosher pretty much says everything sucks except raspberries.

comment Temperature Swings While Bottle Conditioning/Carbonating
nope, stuck it in the freezer for 40 minutes, then left out for 10 so it wasn't ice cold. probably served at around 40 degrees.

@mdma I wasn't aware that this site required me to 'accept' answers, but per your request, I have gone to my threads and done so.

@brewchez, yeah it was a stretch. Added 12oz pureed fresh figs to the last 5 minutes of the boil. Would have probably made more sense to add to the secondary, particularly since the style is sometimes served with a fruit syrup. The final product is a bit cidery, but very drinkable and very interesting. Going to take some to my homebrew meeting this sunday and get some non-biased reviews....
