From a kit? I've just made a cheap coopers draft kit with 1kg dextrose and 2.5kg white sugar coming in at 1.076OG and 9.2%ABV, I know it probably wont be nice to drink but will keep the mrs quiet Just wondering what sort of strength you guys have tried and how they turned out?

From a kit? An Imperial stout that was somewhere in the 1.070 range, as I recall. Having switched to AG about 4 months ago, the biggest beer I've made so far ran around 1.064.

RIS = 12%, IIPA = 11.5%

The IIPA is WONDERFUL. RIS is aging still but tastes great warm and flat.

I brewed an IIPA at 11.something% haha. Tastes fairly good, but kicks like a mule.

I knew everyone would have tried one at some point just to see what happens Some huge beers there! I'm looking forward to seeing how it tastes with 2.5kg (5+lbs) of white sugar in it I know a guy who says he put 6kg in with the same kit and it came out fine but I cant swear to the accuracy of his stories
