Recalculated starting gravity was 1.20.
Final Gravity was 1.050.
I'm thinking of pitching some champagne yeast to try and dry it out a bit and maybe eat up even just a little of that residual sugar

Wow that is a huge beer. Sounds like you gave wlp099 a nice start. What temp is it at right now? Ill bet if you bring it up to a round 70 or 72 degrees, you could get the yeast that is already in it to finnish the job..... maybe do some rousing or a shot of oxygen?

Tried raising the temp for a few weeks and nothing changed. It has since cooled down a bit. I am going to bring it back up to around 70 and pitch some champagne yeast and see if I get any results from that. Will let you know. Worst case it is a bit sweeter than I wanted but the carbonation and age should help that a little. Feel good about it for a first attempt at a monster ale like this.
