This might sound like a strange question but if the Brix is say 28 what would the S.G. be? Is there a conversion scale?

Hopefully it will ferment dry and not stall. I added some yeast nutrients just in case. I'm working with wild yeasts, by the time we pressed (yesterday) some of the must was already down to 1.030.....just figured it was too late to pitch a store bought yeast.

I would pitch the store bought yeast. there is a big chance that the must will not ferment to dry.

Agree, throw some 1118 in there, it may pick up where the natural yeast run out of steam, but do it sooner than later and make a good starter for it.
