Didn't you add priming sugar?

How long ago did you bottle?

I'm also having little to no carbing but I suspect that the yeast is stressed by the amount of Alc (14.4% in mine). Your looks 13.26%. I'm going to try to inoculate with active yeast from a starter at or just after high krausen based on leghorn's post #1398 in http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f14/im-t...leywine-63737/ (Should be on or near the last page depending on how many posts per page you display)

(Why does everyone keep asking me that?)
Yes, I added priming sugar. Enough for 3 vols back in December. Like you I believe the yeast is stressed out, man. Adding active krausen is a good idea. Great link. I was especially wondering how much to add. Thanks!

Probably because you said this!

I bottled everything in to flip tops and am wondering if I should add some low gravity wort to assist with this problem. Anyone have any suggestions or recommendations on how much, what gravity, etc?

This has worked out great. Since I posted it in the other thread, I'll repeat it here. I took WLP099 and created a starter of 1 cup XLDME/4 cups water. Included yeast nutrient. I waited until just after high krausen, and then shook the starter vigorously, then added to each bottle. I used a liquid medicine syringe you can get free from any pharmacy. Used 1.25mL/bottle. The 1.25 mL was not scientific, just felt right, but it has carbonated formerly still beers and is a good insurance policy for any high gravity brew. It will be my standing practice for anything above 9% going forward.

There is not discernable flavor impact, just makes sure there is carbonation. Good luck with yours!

Default Wow!!!!!!

I tried this recipe shortly after I started lurking on this forum. I tapped the keg last weekend and HOLY SHNIKES its awesome!!!!!!!! Great body, a little residual sweetness, mouthfeel like your rubbing your tongue on velvet, even with carbonation to 2.5-3.0 vols.

I tapped the keg and was screwing around with serving pressures etc. before I realized I had drank 3 pints of the stuff. Apparently the %abv calculation was fairly accurate as well.

I appreciate the wealth of knowledge I have gained on this forum as well as the knowledge that I'm not the only one who shares this obsession.

I will be upgrading my membership as soon as some additional funds become available.

Got the Portugese floor corker today, so hoepfully I'll be bottling tomorrow. I also went ahead and got 2 packs of S-04. Do you think it would be better to use one pack per 5 gallons (more or less)? Or should I make a starter of sorts and "pitch" at high krausen. I'd like it to be carbonated by October.

Well finally got this beast bottled last weekend. Ended up going with a pack of S0-4 per batch and enough table sugar to get around 3.4 volumes. 10 gallons corked and caged. Seems like it has mellowed a lot, but man it is ever strong! Not really hot, there is just a lot of freaking alcohol in this beer. I'm betting carbonation and being chilled (along with a few more months) will vastly improve the "booziness".

Each year we do an "anniversary series swap". It always falls on dates like 10-10-10, 9-9-09 etc. We decide on a big recipe more than a year before, then brew it as close to a year before the date as we can. Obviously this year we brewed close to 10-10-09. When it gets closer to 10-10-10, we will organize a swap with everyone who actually brewed the beer. Its a sticky so its easy to find and doesn't get buried in one of the forums.
