    I have had a low ABV Neipa in the fermenter for 8 days now and there is a thick "cake batter" looking layer still on the top. It fermented hard for 3 or 4 days, I dry hopped on day 3. I plan to dry hop again today but I'm concerned with that layer on top. FG is within .002 of my expected FG. Anyone have this happen with this yeast?

    London III is a true top cropping yeast, meaning it flocculates up before dropping out to the bottom. The layer on the top is not unusual, just shake the fermenter (without aerating it, in other words with the fermenter closed to outside air) and it should drop out, some may come to the top again, but it maybe still working on the last of the sugars in the beer. Completely normal for that yeast.
