Thanks for the advice. Ill be going on deployment in a few months. Ill prob have a few before then and bottle the rest. Then Ill have over a case of well aged 120 waiting for me when I get back. I think itll be much needed by then!

Well after much anticipation on my part, I have finally kegged this monster and started drinking it last week. The final abv was 21% and was like jet fuel for a bit there, but has mellowed in the last month. Only thing that bothers me is the cloudyness of the beer. Its still early in the keg but I would think it should have cleared by now. Any suggestions?

Gelatin in the keg. Another 120 cloner, Scottland, has a good writeup of this in a few threads. Very easy to use, very easy results.

I did it too based on the thread from Scotland, almost 7 weeks ago, I'm about to rake it to secondary and start the dry hopping. It was brilliant when I was doing the sugar addition. Haven't tasted it since. I didn't reach 20% abv but came close.
When you added the yeast nutrient did you just dump it in the bucket or did you boil it before?

I just dumped it in. Its amazing how much you can get away with regarding sanitation. I think this is due to the amount of alcohol that has already been produced.

Just put mine in the secondary after 2 months in the primary. It is a 19.55% ABV. Damned tasty brew.
Hope yours is a good as mine.

Well it has been almost a year now since the brew day, and this beer is now very drinkable and almost completely clear! I still have about 3/4 case left and is just getting better by the day. My next venture is the World Wide Stout! Ill start a new thread on this soon.

How did you do the sugar additions? Did you just dump it in or boil it with a little water? I want to do something along the lines of 120min but dont want to screw it up.

I kept a bucket and spoon in a bucket of starsan. When it was feeding time I added the sugar to the bucket then used a big syringe to take out some wort to mix with the sugar then dumped all of it in . Really not hard and you can get away with a lot when alochol is already up there.
