[edit] Definition

A beer brewed at a higher specific gravity so it can be blended down to a lower strength beer for a technique known as High Gravity Brewing or Blending. These beers have a higher IBU, SRM and specific gravity than the beer that will be the end product. Formulas are used to determine how high the specific gravity, SRM, and IBU's will need to be to give a wanted finished product.
