    Yup, I do a 14% Imperial Stout every year but getting past that has proven to be a challenge
    without producing too sweet of a beer. I love pushing the my brewing limits though.

    I brewed a 1.127 OG belgian ale with plans of adding 5lbs of beet sugar during fermentation for
    a calc OG of 1.173. My ingredients were 100% belgian pale mashed at 145. I pitched on top of a
    yeast cak...

    3711 will take you to 1.003. Oh wait, you wanted 1.030?ABV tolerance is 12% on that, I need to
    be closer to 15% which is why I use 099 as my second yeast pitch.

    I think it's a bit late for this but my tips are:Mash long and lowUse sugar for part of the
    grain billStagger the sugar additions a few days apartOxygenate before pitching and again 12-24
    hours after ...

    I took another reading about a week ago, unfortunately it was only down to 1.043. I do know
    that in the past I saw a very slow lag in the 099 doing it's thing....sometimes weeks....but it
    usually take...

    Update, about 5 days into the fermentation I had a SG of 1.045. I pitched the 099. It's been
    another 4 days since then so I plan on taking another reading today. Things are looking good so
    far.

    Nice Mb, 78% attenuation. Looking forward to hearing your results after the additions.

    I take it you mean 1.132? I'm looking for about 3 - 5 lbs for mine, depending on how
    fermentation goes... I'm hoping for 1.030 finishing as well. I used WLP 050 .... we shall
    see:mug:Yup, meant 1.132

    Brewed my "Black Tuesday Inspired" stout on Friday. 4th time doing it. OG was 1.032....I was a
    bit off with anticipated OG being 1.040. My goal is to hit 15% with no sugar adjuncts. Pitched
    a 4L start...

    Brewed it yesterday. Hit my first mash temp perfectly at 140 and held it for 60 minutes. I
    think I missed my 2nd step mash temp. It was really difficult getting the grains mixed with the
    wort again af...
