Pretty sure my post says "after xmas". As in, to bad I didn't brew it earlier in time for xmas. If you make over a thousand posts in one year you are bound to say a few dumb things along the way.

So I brewed this 12 days ago, OG 1.084, using irish ale yeast (wlp004).

Just tested it today and it's about at 1.030.... definitely too sweet. I just roused the yeast (gently of course) and am hoping to eek out about 5ish points... any other suggestions?

raise the temp by 5 to 10*F, depending where you are at now. a brew belt, ferm-wrap or other electric heater is useful as is moving the carboy to a warmer part of the house.

If it doesn't drop from there after rousing and heating, you can always try some amylase. I put half a teaspoon in a stout that was stuck at 1.030 and it took it down to 1.014 in a few days. The thing is, there is nothing that says how much to use, so use it very sparingly or you will end up with a breakfast wine

Mine went from 1.083 to 1.025 and I find it to be a bit thin compared to the original so the slightly higher FG may not be a bad thing, unless you really wanted to nail the ABV.

My ABV is a bit above 7% (brewed the extract version). I read a lot of people on this thread who have said that this beer takes months to reach maturity. Is that still the case with a beer around 7%? How long will the beers stay "fresh" for lack of a better term?

Question: the original recipes says:
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 2 weeks @ 65F
Secondary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 4 weeks @ 65F.

But ive also read in this thread people saying to do 4 weeks primary and up to 6 months in the secondary?

If I do the original and bottle it and age for the 6 months will I get the same results?

Sure, probably. It's all personal preference.

I've been eyeing this awesome looking recipe for a while and finally have all tye ingredients and an open fermentor but I have a question. When I feed the recipe into Beersmith as 5 Gal batch with a 70% efficiency, the OG = 1.099, this is hardcore Russian Imperial Stout territory. The recipe calls for OG of 1.086. For those of you who brewed this, what were your OG / FG's for this and any advice. Thanks.
