Well I dont know whats up with this batch. It has been sitting at 1.066 for weeks. The ph is at 3.66. I have been stirring it up everyday and it bubbles but still nada. I also repitched another packet of yeast still nada. I was wondering, have I hit the top of the abv tolerance for the yeast? I seemed to be cooking right along until I poured in the agave.

Seems I am just talking to myself here lol.
A couple of things I was wondering about. First the fermentation died when I poured in the agave, maybe they put something in the nectar to stop fermentation? I did research the brand and did not see anything in the ingredients. Or maybe the abv is too high. If this is the case maybe I can freeze concentrate it and the re-pitch into the weaker must.
