It was not homebrew. I just stuck it on a shelf. Jamaican Dragon Stout.

Yeah, I used to go with a secondary as soon as the krausen dropped but everyone on here convinced me a long primary was the way to go.

So we had some trouble getting the gravity up and it seems that we were only able to get about 7.8% which is not very good. Any suggestions on what to do to bump up the gravity? I am debating putting 2 to 4 pounds of brown sugar in the beer during secondary. The beer is waaaaaaay too hoppy for the lack of maltiness so it will be very unbalanced if nothing is added.

Had a chance to taste a 12 year old homebrew today. Been in my grandpa's fridge since he bottled them way back then in flip top bottles. Tasted like bitter carbonated soy sauce.
