If you filter it out, there will be no yeast to carbonate your brew. Don't like it? Start kegging.

I've got one, look under my recipes.

If you want to add the Chipotles, go for it. If you want to be in the 7%-8% ABV range, drop the molasses addition.

You may have a wild yeast present. In low enough concentrations, it may be just a lack of body and malt character. As it gets more established, the flavor can get sour. I'd do a 30 minute, hot...

See if you can find a used restaurant equipment shop or a scrap metal dealer. Lots of time they'll have used pots really cheap.

I've used WLP090 a couple of times and have had issues with it not finishing. I'm giving it one more shot and if it fails, there's one less yeast to worry about.

I think you've got too much sugar/honey in this and you'll end up with a watery beer with very little body. Get a hold of some wheat DME or LME and replace the sugars with it.

If the fermentation is finished, adding more yeast is just a waste. You are dropping your new yeast into an environment that is void of fuel and oxygen.

Chad, that looks like a right proper dank DIPA you got going there.

It won't kill you, but your taste buds are going to be ruined for any other brew. :)
