So how does the sample taste? I assume aging for a few months?

Do you take into account the water it takes to boil the sugar?

You aren't boiling any water when adding the sugar. I kept a bucket of starsan next to my fermenter with a theif. Hydrometer, spoon & glass mug in it. I scooped out some of the beer with the mug. Added the sugar, stirred it in and added it back to the beer

Well came home yesterday and gravity was 1.008
And the krazen had fallen so I added a pound of corn sugar got it back up to 1.022 woke up this morning and it was 1.018 so added 4.5 oz
I took another reading tonite and its at 1.022 the yeast may have crapped out , I'll check tomorrow and see if it changes or not
Starting Og 1.156 that's 18.05 percent alcohol id be happy if it stays there would like to crack the 20 percent barrier though
