I wouldn't get too hung up on the numbers. If anything, I'd shoot a little low, like 10% ABV
including all of your sugars should be fine. I don't think aiming for 11.8% ABV is necessary
for the beer t...

Quadruples are the hardest beer I've ever brewed, and the only beer I've tried to make that
turned out undrinkable (twice). A 1.115 OG with only 70% attenuation would be undrinkably sweet

I'm guessing the reason mine is cloudy to begin with is because I used so many hops that it was
