Ahh cool, this explains why the step up is important, as opposed to say a step down or other temperature curve.

comment How does bottling in a half bottle effect taste
I'm with @mdma on this one. It could be the carbonation or the carbonic acid, but force carb a bottle of tap water & compare. From wikipedia: "Carbon dioxide dissolved in water at a low concentration (0.2%–1.0%) creates carbonic acid (H2CO3),[2] which causes the water to have a slightly sour taste with a pH between 3 and 4" - so the pH could impact too.

Thanks guys - for a starter do I chill & pour off to keep only the solid stuff or do I need to preserve specific layers?

@Felix - great question, I'd love to reproduce the Bundaberg GB flavour. Please post your results when you find what does / doesn't work.
