From what I understand you should add your gravity gain from your honey addition to your original gravity to find your adjusted original gravity. As for calculating your FG remember that that honey has a much higher potential to ferment out so you should go under your earlier reading 1.007

OK So my adjusted OG would then be 1.059 and my FG is still 1.005, which is lower than the before honey SG.

I thought you said your pre honey OG was 1.033 and then with your 20 pts of honey it would have ended up at 1.053. As for your FG as long as it is holding steady that makes sense that it should be finished close to that.

The OG after boil was 1.033. I let it ferment for a week down to 1.007 then added the #2 of hone which brought it back up to 1.027

Right, so you gained .020 from the honey, which added to your OG of 1.033 should be 1.053

FG = 1.005

This is one way I saw to do it. Will this work?

1)take gravity right before adding honey = 1.006
2)take gravity right after adding honey = 1.027
3)calculate the difference and add that to original gravity = .020

Would this make my OG = 1.053?

Yes that was my original assumption. Thanks for verifying.
