I think I need to loan out some more of my half-broke crap more often.

How about a '92 GMC pickup? I swear the transmission was fine when you borrowed it.

Ok, another update... the 120 seems to have slowed down! I took a peek in it this morning and the krausen has fallen. I didnt take a gravity reading... i'll check that tonight. Anyways, I figure tonight is the night to drop in the WLP099 and start the dextrose adventure!

My 120 clone has officially reached 20% after 13 days and 22 lbs of sugar (11 gal batch). It slowed down a day or two ago and the gravity is now around 1.030. I'm gonna let it finish and add more sugar later if its too dry to balance the hops and alcohol. Next some dry hopping followed by some cold conditioning.

I tasted it at 17% and it was mighty good even with also the crap in solution. So I think I will be drinking this as soon as its kegged.

Congrats on getting down to 1.030!! That is awesome. I'm pretty sure Sean Paxton only got his down to 1.050, so you're definitely upped the bar.

US-05 nailed it down to 1.018 (9.5% ABV) in 5 days!!!! Adding 1 pound of Dextrose, WLP099 cake, and aerated it for about 90 seconds on low, stirred up the cake in the primary.
