Default FG stuck at 0.020 with extract??

It comes up quite a lot on here, normally unfermentables in extract is blamed, so why not take a Gordian knot solution to the problem and replace half a pound or a pound of extract with sugar?

Soooo.......you don't actually have this problem?

OK, why not.

1/2 lb sugar in anything couldn't hurt.

It does depend alot on what you have brewed.

It does totally depend on the beer (of course it does, like so many factors) but I was just thinking of the easiest solution for people who find their extract beer recipes finish too sweet. It doesn't seem to be often offered as a solution though, more frequently you'll hear 'more aeration', 'better attenuating yeast' or 'it's still beer, enjoy it anyway'.

Seems to me a wise use of sugar would solve the problem quite nicely.
