HAHA! Thanks for the encouragement. I will probably try again this weekend with a better thermometer.
I was thinking about adding some corn sugar to the first batch to boost alcohol to a reasonable level. I took a sample and it doesn't taste bad so maybe its salvageable? any ideas how much I could add without affecting the flavor too much? according to brewtarget, I can add about 1.5lbs and bring it up to almost 4% ABV.
