I had just one before wife got home then out to diner, she drove I had a real good buzz for a while. 2-3 of these and your night might be over.

Oh yeah, my tolerance seems much lower these days. 3 of these would be more than enough for me.

Well 3 of these would be 36 oz at 18% or the equivalent of 18 oz at 36%. This is slightly more potent than 12 1.5 oz shots of Captian Morgan at 70 proof! I would be a mess!

maybe I missed it, did you ever end up getting your FG any lower than the 1.032? if not, this "only" ended up at 13.1%ABV. glad to hear it ended up pretty good either way

Yes I don't remember the exact number but was low 1020's 1022-1024. So still not 18% but close enough and you know it's full of the good stuff when drinking it.
