Thanks all. I chilled it down a bit today and transferred to a keg. Most of the krausen dropped. Tastes ok, a tad more bitter/astringent than I thought but lots of banana.

Is it at terminal gravity?

No worries. Yeast can still be working away even when it seems terminal. Hence the Krausen. If you bottle condition it will finish it's business there. If you force carb kegs then you'll keep it chilled and dormant anyway. As I mentioned before, no harm in leaving another few days after terminal to rest out a few flavours. Depends on style too

Thanks mate. It's kegged at 18psi. Stuff bottling! It's mellowed a little since yesterday. I'm guessing you're right, the yeast might have cleaned up a bit. Anyway, time for the next one - oatmeal stout.
