Anyone with a lot of experiences? I have two beers that will receive it today, each getting 800ML via an overnight starter.
Barleywine @ 1.110 OG w/ 1098 British Ale Yeast + Starter. Two Months later, it's sitting at 1.035 and VERY sweet.
Stout @ 1.129 OG w/ 2 packs of US05 + Starter. One Month later, it's at 1.030 FG and tastes really great but still too sweet.
I figured that with the high gravity, I'd pitch at 68-70F, stir up the carboy a bit and add a bit more oxygen to the wort via a paddle and then recap and wait another 60 days.
I want to avoid ethanol tastes so I did let the yeasts go pretty long. I probably could let the stout go longer, but I only have 1 vial of the high gravity.
Any advice? should I not oxygenate? should I let the 099 go longer than 2 months? Should I rack both of those to secondary instead of just pitching the 099?
