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.

I wasn't kidding about the 24 years. (is that what you were referring to?)

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.
