so, not what I'm going for at all but thanks for the info. After I tested the OG, I freaked out a bit. The issue is that I've had very poor efficiency lately so I beefed up my grain bill to account for this and suddenly, GREAT efficiency (79% efficiency versus 50% in the last few batches. (my mill setting was off).
So, I'm probably just going to let this one sit in the fermenter for 6 months.
