Hello,

Have a gluten free beer that is currently fermenting ... that is going very well. OG reading of 1.081 so it should have a fairly high ABV when done. Used Nottingham Ale Yeast, 11g. Plan on leaving it in the fermenter for at least two weeks and taking FG readings to make sure it is done. My question, do I need to modify how I bottle carbonate it since it is going to have a higher ABV ? I usually use 5 oz.'s of Corn sugar and have had good results. Have read where some add a little yeast to the Wort before bottling, maybe .25 - .50 of an 11g. packet. Any advice appreciated ... thanks.

Not sure, but with an SG that high, I might look at the FG, and the lifespan of nottingham, and maybe pitch something neutral like champagne yeast at bottling if you are not kegging. Look at the lavlin EC-1118 .

Thanks, does the FG reading dictate how you carbonate ?
