Title: Floating seeds?
Post by: theoman on May 29, 2010, 12:09:55 PM
This is a new one for me. While brewing a couple days ago, I suddenly noticed a bunch of hemp-looking seeds floating on top of the wort. I assume these are from the hops. I'm not really alarmed or anything, just a bit surprised. Has anybody else had floating seeds?

I just let them float, but I kinda wish I would've fished them out and had a taste.

they're not gonna hurt anything.  certain lots that i end up with are loaded with seeds, like 1/4 cup from 6 oz in a 5 gal batch.  i'll generally include at least one extra beer into my session for that evening.
