with a hydrometer? Is that a trick question?
To paraphrase Dr. England - "Off-flavors smooth with time. So do mountains. Brew it right from the start!"

You'll need to measure the quantity of frozen beer you remove and recalculate. As soon as I find my book that has full explanation I'll post the answer.
Fermenting: Saison
Secondary/Lagering:Vienna Lager
Bottled: Am. Amber, JC Dubbel, Behemoth Imperial Stout, Hefeweizen, Smoked Barleywine, Sm. Porter, Dunkelweizen, Cream Stout, etc
Kegged: Amber Ale, Doppelbock, Oktoberfest, Nut Brown Ale, Pilsner, Maier Bock, Brown Ale, Cream Stout, Am. Amber, Vienna Lager.

new abv=(original abv)*(original volume)/(new volume)
