The samples go right back in the fermenter. My hydrometer, test tube, and turkey baster soak in star stan all day long. That way I can test the gravity twice a day and not worry about wasting all that beer.

Fermentation is winding down. 1.022 today. I added another 6oz dextrose brining it back up to 1.025. I actually hope it stops soon. 19-20% ABV with the FG around 1.025 would be perfect.

Current gravities: OG: 1.167, SG: 1.025, ABV: 18.6%

That's a fine idea. Especially with that much alcohol and yeast activity, your chances of infection are very slim.

1.022 tonight. I added the last 12oz I had planned, bringing me to 1.028. I'm hoping the yeast choke off half way through that sugar addition.

Current gravities: OG: 1.174 SG: 1.028, ABV: 19.1%

I've got another pound of dextrose if need be. I want the FG north of 1.020, but ABV south of 21%

Are you going to be bottle priming this stuff? What are your plans for that?

Do you have a beer gun or something? I want to try to do this, but im going to have to try to bottle prime so I might not get to take it to the max like your doing. That 099 will go to 25% supposedly, and I believe it after seeing what your doing. Any other yeast would have crapped out long ago. However the yeast will be traumatized after this

Nope, I just bottle straight from the tap with the pressure turned way down. Works great, I've had beers placed first in comps bottled that way.

Bottling conditioning..... It's possible, ill start with that. You'd want about 1/4 to 1/3 of a cup of dextrose for a 5gal batch worth of Co2. I just have no idea if the yeast would restart at that ABV even if you quit feeding them before stopped. Bottle conditioning definitely adds another layer complexity.

Do you just have regular perlick taps? This interests me, I am going to need to do it in the next few months with a imperial stout I made... How much head rolls over the end of the bottle? Where do you fill to?
