and still were able to get it to Carbonate by adding sugar water??? We moved so I had one that smelled and tasted AWESOME but it was in fermentation for almost 90 days. I am hoping it carbonates!

Welcome to HBT!

I've gone 8 months in carboy and it carbonated just fine. I routinely go a couple months and have never had a problem. The yeast will laugh at your puny 90 days and carbonated just fine.

Lots of people have gone 6 months or more with no problems.

You will have some extremely clear beer when you bottle it.

I did 6 months this past year and it worked just fine and that is even when it was in a drafty house in milwaukee for the winter.
