I didn't think your OG measurement was accurate when I started reading your post, and I really don't once you have such a low FG.. 1056 wont make it past 12%, and that is just too far to go in such a short time. I hope it is the case, but again, just wondering if your original measurement was correct. If it is, rock the hell on though dude, that is pretty epic!

I agree this doesn't seem possible--any of it. But based on what I tasted, it seems spot on. From now on, I'm taking OG/FG photos for later reference.

I'm just bulk aging the beer on oak cubes. Once the oaking is right, it's getting carbed and bottled up for next year. That brings up a good point, though. My intention was to beer gun it into bottles. But it seems like a better idea is to carb it in bottle. I've only forced carbed. Should I try a bit of sugar or something?

--Thanks, Chris

I would do a little if both maybe, but if I had to choose, it would be carb -> beer gun
