After a total of 22 days on the primary yeast cake the final gravity is 1.020. I raised the temp, agitated the yeast, aerated and even added more yeast. The only thing that I can think of is that I took incorrect readings during my mash and mashed too high.

I bottled it today, the sample I tasted was quite nice tasting so I have some hope for this one, sometimes the beers that you expect the least out of suprise you and become some of your best.

I think it is going to taste like an overhopped strongish scotch ale by the time its all said and done....maybe I invented a delicious new style.
