i have a belgian golden strong ale in primary for 6 days now. OG was 1.077. current SG has been 1.016 for 2 days now. 16 is the top of the range for BJCP style guidelines. i'm concerned only because this is a contest beer. i think this is too high given that my OG was on the low end of the range. any suggestions? i've read about some brewers adding a lit bit of candi sugar throughout the fermentation to boost the ABV, will this also lower my FG? how about rousing? the krausen has already fallen and the beer is starting to clear up nicely but i do have some time to let it settle out again before i need to move on to 2ndary and bottling. what about a half gallon of cheap vodka! J/K! if i do add some more candi sugar, how should i account for this addition in the OG????? thanks for the suggestions.
