So I'm brewing a Double IPA and my original gravity is 1.087 which is good for the style. But my FG is 1.022 (too high for the style). I want to keep the OG where it is but I want the FG to be lower (1.020 is the highest for the style).
Is there some way to do that? maybe add a little sugar toward the end of fermentation or something?
I realize I can always "fudge" my numbers a little bit for competition but I'd rather do it the true way.
+1 to lower mash temp
Also, your grain bill can affect how fermentable your wort will be. There is also the option of replacing a small % of your grain bill with a highly fermentable sugar (cane, brown, agave, honey, etc.)
if it's not AG I would make a little mini wort, like half a gallon with a small amount of DME, corn sugar, hops and maybe some yeast nutrient. add all that to thew fermenter and it should get the yeast going again
