At least admit you left the state while the beer was in primary
Don't forget about the pig that's stuffed inside of the cow. Not to mention, the turkey, and the chicken, and the duck, and the Linguiça...

Brian, that's a challenge. How big can you go on the meat?

Just for the record, I'm awake and mourning the loss of this beer. I have drowned ny sorrows in 8 sweetwater 420s, but I'm awake.

It is sad I know. There is a DFH 120 clone thread on here where people routinely make beers over 20% alcohol. The key is that they make a strong beer, then add sugar to it successively. And I think therein lies the ticket. I think to make this beer you either need to use a high percentage of simple sugar, or at least add the super high gravity wort like what Cape made in smaller doses over a period of days.
