I brewed a Belgian Dubbel used an Ardenesse Wyeast yeast. After 3 weeks it seems to have ended its fermentation process at 1.035.

I was hoping for a 10 - 12% beer. Looks like its around 8% using these calculations.

Any ideas? Has anyone ever ended up in this position? Thank you for the help.

that's a big beer.. aeration, huge starter? Recipe? If AG mash temps, etc we need lots more info.

while not as extreme, this thread may also help a bit.

(1.115 - 1.035) *131 = .08*131 = 10.48%

You have 70% attenuation and 10.4% ABV.

Thats cool. So take the difference and multiply by the magic number which is 131 and you get ABV. Thats way cool. Now I don't have to fish around for a hydrometer or book to figure it out.

It seems like this dubbel is in your desired alcohol range of 10 - 12%. You should congradulate yourself.

That's a really high OG and ABV for a dubbel, that's even high for a belgian dark strong ale. But, if that's what you were aimin' for then way to go.

That's like a belgian quintupel or sextupel. Heck, in England, you can make a beer with an OG of 1.035.

That's gonna be pretty sweet once the alcohol taste mellows out.

That's not a dubbel. But it could be good - let us know how it turns out.
