My 1.074 Big Bourbon Barrel Brown that's bubbling away in the basement right now is the biggest I've made. Hoping to get it down to 1.016.

The real question is what are the final number(s) .

I made My Christmas Stout yesterday, it landed in at 1.089 and the Braggot that I did along with it came in at 1.070 (Nothing too wowee)

This is not counting my 1.100 Extract stout that I did when I first started brewing, it doesn't count because it was a mistake.

I like me a big beer every once in a while...which is why bottling still has great merit, even to those who keg.

I just bottled a 1.072 Saison that finished at 1.010. 8.21% according to Promash. I only ended up with about 3.5 gallons in the fermenter, so it only took one rehydrated pack of T-58 dry yeast and was going after 3 hours. I let it ferment at about 80 though. I was wanting to try out this yeast to see if it was a good replacement for liquid belgian yeast. I figure if it is good enough for De Struise it should be ok for me. I will give a review when it is carbed.
