Default 1069 to 1004..is it possible?

Hello everyone..I previously made a post about a BGSA i am about to brew...Im shooting for a 1069 OG and want to ferment it down to 1004 to give me an abv of around 8.5 and a dry beer..I will be dosing with dextrose during fermentation..Is this even possible in a homebrew setting to achieve that much attenuation?..I never got that much attenuation before ..what do you all thing?[/QUOTE]

What's the recipe? I guess it's possible to get a super dry beer like that with the right yeast, some sugar additions and if all grain a really low and long mash.

I just took a Duvel Clone down from 1.070 to 1.006. Mashed low, and used a little over 20% plain sugar, with yeast harvested from Duvel bottles.

It's possible, but you may want to look into staggered yeast/nutrient/enzyme/oxygen additions to push things along. Or you could sub malt (appx 75% fermentable) for honey/sugar (nearly 100% fermentable).

It's hard to predict FG but if you do everything on point to what you laid out I think at the very least you should get pretty close. Good luck, sounds tasty.

Agreed with the 20% sugar if you want to get it low. Everything else you have looks solid.

For estimating final gravity see this:

And about mash temperatures:
