comment Dropped the temperature as it was getting out of control, did I shock my yeast?
Great advice overall, thanks. I did take gravity and it was indeed close to finished at 1.014. An extra 5 days only brought it to 1.013 and bottled after that... at bottling it didn't taste bad, the malt character came through but there were esters on top. It didn't taste too "hot" or fusel-y (and I know how that tastes since a Belgian we did last time definitely had the same problem, but had aged out well). Unfortunately aging isn't a good option—it's a dry-hopped IPA. We'll see how the esters add to the character :) Sorry for rambling.

comment Mash-produced unfermentable sugars do add sweetness and aroma?
This is interesting and a great practical description of why the temperature balance is so important!
