so i use vodka in m to my airlocks just incase anything is sneakey and tries to get in there. well this time the vodka itself was sneaky. i put the dubble in temp controled freezer to cold crash it some before i keg it, pressure drop sucked some of the vodka into the dubble. wondering if i should be worried, i have been waiding for this dubbel and it would kill me if i ruined it with some vodka.

Your dubbel will be fine, there shouldn't be more than 1.5 oz of vodka in the airlock, and that small of an amount going into even a 1 gallon batch won't be noticeable. And assuming your doing a 5 gallon batch I wouldn't give it a second thought.

As opposed to ruining it with some sanitizer?

The beer will be fine, you won't know the suckage is even in there...

Cheers!

I guess that's one way to raise the ABV without adding more grain.

Vodka is a pretty sterile environment. Not much can live in that much alcohol.
