We consider the behaviour of a continuous super-Brownian motion catalysed by a random medium with infinite overall density under the hydrodynamic scaling of mass, time, and space. We show that, in supercritical dimensions, the scaled process converges to a macroscopic heat flow, and the appropriately rescaled random fluctuations around this macroscopic flow are asymptotically bounded, in the sense of log-Laplace transforms, by generalised stable Ornstein-Uhlenbeck processes. The most interesting new effect we observe is the occurrence of an index-jump from a Gaussian situation to stable fluctuations of index $1+\gamma$, where $\gamma \in (0,1)$ is an index associated to the medium.
