So I'm about to keg an apa after I have been CC, and I have notice bits of ice floating around on top of the beer...
Never had this happen so should I just wait for it to warm up a bit or is it stuffed? :(
Cheers

I froze my apa 3 weeks ago. Just let it warm up a touch. By he time you get everything ready she be right. I never had a problem and beer was amazing.

Should be right as long as there's no big chunks of ice it should all be melted by the time you sterilise and pour.

yeah I bottled one of mine once still had a heap of ice in the bottom when done. I figured it would just be more alcoholic and from memory it was nice to (for a kit beer :p ) but wouldnt worry a bit

I've had chunks of ice in my fermenter quite a few times. It's never adversely affected the beer, it always turns out fine.

Eisenbock FTW

It is a style I have been wanting to try.

You're half way there!
