You discovered a perpetual fermentation machine! Now you can just pull a beer off every now and then and add more water! You'll have beer for life!

Seriously though... One of them is an inaccurate reading.

Test your hydromenter in water and make sure it reads 1.000 and if not, adjust for it.
I've had hyrdometers that have gone inaccurate after 3-4 years while some have lasted me a decade.

Yeah definitely too sweet. And if you're planning to bottle you'll want it much lower to avoid bombs. What temp do you have it at and what yeast are you using?

Did you do what Beer-lord suggested? If the scale in the tube has shifted, you really don't know what the gravity is, but you can check the hydrometer in distilled water at the proper temperature. It should read 1.000. If it reads 1.005, then just subtract 0.005 from your gravity reading.

The temperature of the beer must have gotten colder, causing the density to increase.
