just racked my Double Chocolate Stout. SG was @ 1.024, but with a OG of 1.070, I am at 6.0% ABV already...

once i racked it and put it back in the closet, i noticed the airlock was active again.... about 1 bubble every 30 seconds...

Here's bumping that ABV up another .5 % or maybe more...

this kit was supposed to be a 5.0 % ABV, but I added the extra alcohol boost, so I have reached the promised 6.0%.

i am still a newbie, but my first three batches all increased another .5% - .7% while in the secondary.

Primary 1:
Blue Moon Clone

Primary 2:
Nut Brown Ale

Secondary 1:

Secondary 2:

Kegged and Drinking:
American IPA, Special Holiday Ale

Bottled and Drinking:
Irish Red Ale, Summer Saison Belgian Ale, Pumpkin Ale, Fat Tire Clone

Planning: Chiplote Ale, Blueberry Wheat, Cherry Stout, Chocolate Cherry Stout and been thinking about something crazy like a Wintergreen Stout
