BIG BEER ........BIGGER than anticipated....

Recommended Posts

Brewed this last night and it really took off .....

1 can Bewitched Red Ale
1 can Pale Export
1 lb wheat DME
1-1/3 cup Grade B Maple syrup.
1/2 oz Strisslespalt hops 28 mins
1/2 oz Strisslespalt hops 8 mins

OG: 1.066 :ohmy:

6 gr K-97 yeast

This one will have to sit for a while ...looks like it will be a good cool fall nights beer....

I really did not anticipate that hight of a bump in the ABV .... I have never used maple syrup before.

That was a lot of maple syrup. But I suspect the bump was more from the wheat DME which will bump your ABV up 2% all by itself.

Your ABV is at 6.4%. Most of my brews range from 5.9% to 9%. I would say you have a little big beer. :laugh: I like the 6 range for easy drinking. :gulp:

formula for FG: OG divided by 4 = FG example: OG 1.066 you would divide 4 into 66 and get 16.5 I round up to 17. So now you take OG and subtract the estimated FG take that answer and multiply by 131 and you get ABV%
example: 1.066 - 1.017 = 0.049 x 131 = 6.419 = 6.4% :)
