I am new to the forum and still pretty new to homebrewing. I was trying (just for fun) a super high gravity ale (OG: 1.200) using WLP099 Super High Gravity. I am trying to push the 1 gallon batch to 20% ABV or higher.
I was curious if anyone had experience with this yeast or with super high gravity beers in general. What are some tricks to push the ABV so high? I notice that the yeast is very slow, even at higher temps. It reached about 11% then quit, so i made another starter (about a quart) and repitched. Now i pushed it to 15% but it is slowing down again.
Is this yeast just really slow and i should just be patient?
