I would be able to tell you the ABV, IF I had managed to remember to take a gravity reading before pitching. Which I didn't.:cross:

OK, tomorrow I will be brewing up a Rye IPA kit from the LHBS. The instructions given are pretty generic, and mention letting the grain steep for 30 minutes in 150 degree water. Trouble is, it...
