I'm guessing there was a butt-load of preservatives in all that crap, errrr- "ingredients" you put into the wort. Perservatives have a nasty habit of inhibiting growth of microbes such as yeast.

If you added that much yeast and the SB hasn't changed...you got a dumper...I'm assuming your yeast packets were viable and your hydrometer works...sounds like it was working on brewday.

With 3 yeast packs and wild yeast, there is NO way that there has not been fermentation unless there is something killing yeast on contact. If it tastes like beer, keg it; if it tastes like wort dump it.

Perhaps Ninkasi has cursed you for putting peanut butter into beer.
