My raspberry brett stout will be six weeks old on saturday and it has been at 1.020 for about three weeks now. (Down from 1.061) Note that about nine points of the remaining gravity come from lactose. I was thinking about giving it another two weeks in secondary, then priming with corn sugar and dosing wlp001 and bottling. Thoughts?

With Brett as the primary yeast, that should be done.

i know brett produces less CO2, but why dose? why not just add more priming sugar and ride it out?

More for predictability than anything else.
