Rack off the liquid portion
Replace half the old sweet feed with new
Add more sugar
In order for this to I would have to add the boiling water with dissovled sugar to the new sweet feed in a seprate bucket and allow it to cool before mixing the old with new. Because if I add the boiling water to the bucket that has the old sweet feed and yeast in it the yeast will be killed off.
Am I going about this in the right way are not?

Should I worry about aging sweet-feed whiskey? Advise me if you've had a good experience with doing that. Should I think about medium-toast or heavy-toast oak?
