I have a IIPA in the fementer right now. It has an ABV of 9.4, IBU > 100 and it's 4.5 gal. Fermentation temp is around 66-68F. I have read some differing opinions on what is best to use as a priming sugar, DME vs. corn or table sugar, and amounts to use of each. I have heard that usnig DME makes a better tasting beer, but that it can also bump up the ABV? (which I don't want to do here as I already over shot a bit, but that didn't really make sense to me). I have also seen that that isn't really true. I'm also not quite sure how much to use as I have seen some diffrent opinions there too. I like my beers to not be super carbonated, almost like a cask conditioned beer would be. I looked at the tasty brew calculator, but it didn't list IIPA as a style option to put in.
Any one out there tried both and have a preferance, and know if it will really change the ABV? And sugestions on how much to use?
