Adding sugar won't raise the FG as it is mostly fermentable. It'll just create more alcohol.
Try adding something unfermentable like lactose or maltodextrine if you want to raise the FG.
Those will al...

I just recently built out some proper fermentation control. This summer, my apartment has been
between 65 and 89 degrees, the latter being during a heat wave.I'd gotten pretty good with a

Yeah. Apatite formation. :)Over my head, but cool to read about

In regards to adding Gypsum to the kettle, would adding Calcium Chloride ostensibly provide the

Unfortunately no photos of the Mimosa brew on FB or their website. There is a gallery of them
