I'm glad everything worked out. It seems that you put in enough dme for a 5 gallon batch. According to my calculations you needed 3.88 pounds of dme for an og of 1.070.

If your gravity reading was correct, your abv is about 13-14%.

Also, getting that much attenuation from your yeast is awesome. I'm usually lucky to hit70%

That was good for a chuckle. I've been brewing for 7 or 8 years, or something like that, and I wouldn't call it "easy"!
