    So, racked these guys today, FG looks to be 1.040.. However, I think that sugar is mostly
    unfermentatble. Or infact, not sugar at all but perhaps caramel. I did some reading,
    apperently, if you take s...

    And just to prove that it is really going.... A little messy but much better than when it was
    simply just sitting still.

    Yeah, I am not quite sure what is going on. I heard from somewhere that even simple sugars can
    become unfermentable if you heat them long enough... So, I am wondering if it is possible that
    I created ...

    Well, time has made the picture a bit more clear... Bubbles are coming up like crazy from all
    the carboys. Looks like fermentation has restarted once again!

    Holy moley of changes! I went into the fermentation room and noticed one of the funk meads
    necks had a ring of bubbels in it. I gave it a taste and the flavor profile is significantly
    different than i...

    So, knowing that thier is some intense sour component I went ahead and purchased 1 gallon of
    tart cherry concentrate ( from real cherries). will add this to top off the head space in 1
    of the carboy...

    I was getting a bit concerned about the funk monster so I gave it 200 ppm sulfite and racked it
    into carboys. Gravity continued to move upward to close to 1.040. It has a kind of acidic taste
    not like...

    So, we got some major strangeness going on right now. The gravity was around 1.030 when I added
    the starter ( which included 1.5 gallons of water). The gravity is now 1.036-1.038 ( yes it has
    gone up)...

    Looks like we are stuck at 1.028 ish again. I will buy some UV-43 ( hardcore restart yeast) and
    some yeast hulls ( to strip out toxins). The plan is to add the yeast hulls then rack off of
    them, and p...

    Gravity is now down to 1.030. It is REALLY crawling now. I went and added some fermaid O to it
    and gave it a really good stir. Hopefully this will get this guy moving on a bit more briskly.
