Does it not taste very yeasty?
I'm just a noob myself, so what do I know? That said, you surely used a lot of sugar, as evidenced by both your recipe and your OG. Seems like the cloud would be a lot of yeast working a lot of sugar, as your high FG would seem to indicate...seems like it needs a bit more time before kegging, but likely you have some goal in mind that I, with my limited understanding, fail to perceive.
To be more specific, I am puzzled by your use of so much sugar (as if setting out to produce a very high octane apfelwein) vs. your choice of yeast (about 11-13% ABV capable max) vs. the expectation of completion in just five days; again, I'm a noob, so perhaps the yeast choice was an attempt to leave plenty sugar for sweetness??? but completion in five days? My initial thought was that you need to thin down the mixture to two batches, but since you like the taste...what the heck, enjoy!
yeast...man's best friend
