Well i have had problems with stuck ferments ( the last 3 brews) so on my last brew (wheat beer) I ensured good yeast (wyyeast 3068) from a healthy starter the wort had 4 hours of airation and fermented at 20 degrees ( the ferment went crazy and after 4 days I got a gravity of .006 (starting was 1.052) this gives about 6% alchohol and no boddy right off the scale for style. can a beer be tamed with dilution abd malt extract after fermentation or maybe corn syrup for boddy. tasting from the fermenter I recon the alchol dominates the palate any Ideas Cheers Jethro :beerbang:

Corn syrup is for thickening up packet soups etc.

You could try some Lactose.

the 3068 has only 72-77% attenuation, wonder if you have an infection?
