    Did you do a starter? You might want to add some more yeast. I've had that problem a few times
    before with high gravity beers, sometimes I've been able to fix it, others I've just had very
    sweet beer.

    Doing a 2 gallon batch. OG started out at 1.10 (!) Day 7: Down to 1.026 (9.71% ABV!). Tastes
    pretty good. Very yellow.Day 28: Bottled. Smells fantastic. Waiting 2 weeks and I'm popping
    some bottles!

    Still in the low 1.020 range, but it tastes freaking delicious!!

    It was the Chimay, and I only started with one vial but added a second. I went to the local
    homebrew place (again) and we identified the bitter taste as acetaldehyde, which will go away
    with time.Corr...

    After 2 weeks in primary, 5 weeks in secondary, and 2 weeks in the bottle, I couldn't stand it
    anymore and had to taste one. The taste was nice, still a little hot and no carbonation yet.
    I'm really h...

    Yeah, my second go at this ended up finishing at 1.018. It seems to have a little of that
    alcohol harshness, but it mellows quite nicely in 4-8 weeks. Was your white labs yeast the
    WLP500 Chimay or di...

    Ugh, I was thinking the same thing. It's down to 1.020, which is encouraging. The flavor is
    evolving, but it has a bitter bite to it. Frustrating because of the long conditioning time may
    yield cap, b...

    It was still at 1.030 last Monday. That same day, I added some yeast nutrient and stirred the
    wort. I'll check the gravity again tonight.Have a 1.026. Local Homebrew Shop told me to apply
    more started...
