I'd be interested to see how far down it goes, Champagne/Wine yeasts typically only eat simple sugars.

After this i ricked and added some amylase. Also made a starter with the wlp099 using the partially fermented wort to get it used to the alcohol and champagne yeast that was already in there and stalled out.

So heres where we are at so far. I aerated and added some amylase from my lhbs. I also made a starter of wlp099 using the partially fermented wort to take it to the next level because the sugars were not fully fermented. Thoughts?

How long has it been since adding the amylase? Give it a few weeks.

Let the amylase sit for a while, it will take time for it to work at fermentation temps.
