So it will continue to drop in gravity for that long of a period? Can I do anything at this
point to speed this up?

Update- Just took a reading on this, 1.030, still quite sweet of course but no off flavors and
there is still activity in the airlock. One month ago it was 1.040 so it is still dropping. Is
it okay to...

Is it okay to use wyeast wine neutrient, staggard? It says to use 1/2t per 5 gal, will it give
off flavors if I put more in the next day?

It's a 5 gal batch. I did add wyeast nutriant and DAP. It has started chugging slowly. I was

Not sure I understand: the gravity is caused by the amount of honey in the must - the more
honey in a gallon the higher the initial gravity. A gravity of 1.122 just means that you used 3
lbs of honey ...

No way to carb that up? That sucks.

So you are kegging and it won't carb up by force carbing?

I have aged two beers, an 8% Porter and a 7.5% Red in a 10 gal whiskey barrel from a local
small batch distiller. I kept it wet between the two with a bottle of Jim Beam Devil's Cut.
Both sat for 30 d...
