Ok, so i had this brew last night at a local pub, and it's fantastic! Maybe not a great fall beer, but would be awesome for spring and summer. Anyone Else had this? I've gotta try to brew this one. Terrapin's web site says the following.

This massive wheat beer is brewed with an obscene amount of locally grown Tupelo and Sourwood Honeys from Savannah Bee Co. This Gamma Ray will stop any super hero’s arch enemies in their tracks!

The high content alcohol of these beers make them perfect for cellaring…hide them away and pull one out for a special event 2-3 years later.

ABV: 11.0%

IBU’s: 40

O.G.: 22. 6

Malt: 2-Row Pale, Munich Wheat, Carapils Acidulated

Hops: Perle, Mt. Hood

Honey: Tupelo & Sourwood

Any one know what the OG of 22.6 would be? And what is "Acudulated"?
brewing lots, rather not keep it all updated here

Commercial brewers express their gravity readings in degrees plato.

22.6 plato = 1.096 Specific Gravity Units (aka a pretty big ass beer)
