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.

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.
