The yeast still seem to be pretty active. I've been feeding them 12oz twice a day, which is double what most people have done. I think it's starting to slow down a little bit though. My primary goal is managing the FG. Its drier than I want now though, so I'll just keep feeding them sugar till the had enough.

Did you taste the hydrometer sample? I just hope the mad amounts of sugar additions along with the Turbo-Powered yeast aren't producing odd flavors. Meh, even if that is the case I'm sure this batch is going to be aging for some time.

Ya. It's a little hot with alcohol, but fairly clean. Lots of hop, then the alcohol. That's to be expected since its so young. I've kept it fairly cool so I didn't expect too many off flavors. 63* with the WLP007, and now 66* since the WLP099 went in. Those are actual wort temps

hope for 025 or less. At 030 it'll be too sweet!

The only thing I could recommend would be obtaining an amount of beer for testing, 50ml for example, and mixing it with equal amount of water for sampling, and doubling the results. I know its almost done at this point, but im guessing those samples aren't enjoyable to drink, and that's a lot of DFH120 to be dumping. Awesome thread, I've been inspired.

Fermentation slowed a little bit. Gravity is slowly climbing over the 12hr intervals. 1.023 tonight when I went to add more sugar. So I added only one 6oz bag for the first time. I've got three 6oz bags left. Current gravities: OG: 1.164, SG: 1.026, ABV: 18.1%

Crossed the 18% barrier!!

Are you sure about that? 0.00001mL = 0.01uL No research/reference grade mechanical pipettor can accurately dispense that volume, so I'd be surprised that any sort of plunger-style medical syringe could do that volume.
