A simple way to calculate abv is:

(OG - FG) x 131 = abv

Nope, I goofed. My final gravity was 1.018 not 1.010. I used the brewersfriend calculator.

Brewed this 2 weeks ago, just kegged it. My OG was 1.040, and my FG was 1.004 O_O

I guestimate that to be 4.7%

Tasted fantastic though.

Mine went down to 1.004 too. I was aiming for 1.010 but oh well. Just tapped it tonight, tasty!

Ok, to be technical yes. But that formula breaks down a bit with a higher abv. I actually use a different formula all together, and it's more accurate. For this formula, you must use OG and FG in whole numbers though, i.e. 1.050 would be 50. The formula I use is:

((832+ OG) * (832 + FG) * (OG -FG)) / 5,500,000

It's a little more involved, but I think it's more accurate

Brewed this a month ago bumped up the first two hop additions to .50oz instead of the called 25oz. My girl said she wanted a strawberry blonde. Easy fix.

Nice subtle aromatic bite... Crisp would be the best description.
