    Aged Chimay Grande Reserve (Blue)

    Does Chimay Grande Reserved tend to age well? I have two bottles that are roughly 7 years old. They were not really cellered properly so that aspect is questionable as they were just stored in a wine rack in a kitchen.

    Which Malt Will Leave Most Unfermentable Sugar?

    Boiling the wort will drive off all of the O2, won't it?

    Which Malt Will Leave Most Unfermentable Sugar?

    I'm going to be doing a post fermentation boil of some malts to add to a beer that turned out too dry. I was going to steep some crystal malt in about a gallon of water for 30min. Then boil it down to about a half gallon, chill and add it to the beer sitting in the fermenter. I need to know...

    Which Malt Will Add Most Unfermentables?

    It's a distillers yeast. It will take anything down to 1.000 or less especially if the SG is 1.065.

    Which Malt Will Add Most Unfermentables?

    I used WLP099, High Gravity yeast. I thought I got the San Diego Super Yeast but picked up the High Gravity by accident. By the time I realized on brew day it was too late.

    Which Malt Will Add Most Unfermentables?

    Lactose is also an option also. I'm sort of at the point where I wan't to turn it into a barley wine. It's already at 9% at .998 and it's has a bit of an alcohol bite to it. I was thinking the darker malts would cover that up nicely.

    High Gravity Yeast WLP099

    Even if the ethanol taste goes away there will be no sugar. I need to back sweeten it somehow without the damn yeast eating it all.

    Yes. Im sure it´s 1.000. It's the WLP099 (high gravity yeast) that did it. It's a distillers yeast. The homebrew shop was out of the san Diego super yeast so I just grabbed the 099 for some reason.

    Isn't there something I can add to the beer to kill the yeast? I could always heat it up to about 140 and then add my specialty grains.

    I brewed an IPA with wlp099 high gravity yeast last week with an OG of 1.064. I just pulled a reading and it's down to 1.000. I mashed at 158 hoping to create some unfermentable sugars but this was not the case. The taste is straight alcohol at 8.5%. What can I do to make this beer drinkable...
