Just took gravity reading and it was 1.022 after 4 sugar additions,aerated this morning after adding wlp099 starter then added a double sugar addition depending on gravity going to add double sugar additions until the yeast starts slowing down but I don't anticipate that happening any time soon

Keep updating. I am very curious as to how this turns out. I recently had this beer and I have been wondering how a home brewer could get such high alcohol.

Thanks for keeping us updated. I hate those thread where the OP says updates to come and then the thread dies.

I am extremely interested to know how this comes out.

On a side note, does aerating with each dextrose addition increase the risk for oxidation of your beer? If not, why?

No, the yeast will use up any oxy added during the sugar additions. Once you finish the sugar additions you want to be careful about oxidation.

You get the OG points with each sugar addition. When I brewed with each sugar addition I added into beer smith the amount I added each time to see what the OG was brought up to.
