Daaaaamn. At this point you have to wonder how much further it can go. I'd be pretty happy with that though.beerman0001 said:Ck the sg today and it has gone down to 1.012 my og was 1.096 + .076for the 10# of sugar for a total og of 1.172. Should I add some more sugar to bring up the fg??
I think you need to be more proactive then you current train of thought. Right now you have some very hoppy syrup.sort of, mostly my LHBS doesn't carry wlp099, I wanted to use that. Also, I have used trappist high gravity before, it's a good yeast, I like how it tastses when added to california or american ale, just never tried something THIS big before. I might add champagne yeast later, but for now, I am goign to give it a week or two, then to secondary, and if it doesn't taste good in a month or 2, I'm going to have to add WLP099 or just distillers yeast. also lots of hash.
Amen. To be honest though, I don't think the 3787 had what it took to make this beer happen. In my experience in using this strain, it gets to a certain attenuation very quickly but then creeeeps through the last leg of the fermentation. I don't think that's a good habit for this type of beer.scottland said:That's a bummer =( Always a sad day when a beer doesn't turn out right. Extra sad when it's a beer that requires this much time and attention.
