I started at about 15.5 Brix and got down to about 9 brix

If those are refractometer readings it could just be finished. FG ~1.018: http://seanterrill.com/2012/01/06/refractometer-calculator/
Good point.  Really good point.  Are you using a refractometer or a hydrometer?  Some hydrometers have a brix scale.
