So, my favorite beer style is RIS, and I have an affinity for double digit abv. I have always had descent luck getting 12% or so from US-05, but I also feel like I am leaving too many sugars unfermented (it's a bit sweet still). If I could get it up to around 14%-16%, I think it would really bring out the roasted barley and chocolate rye flavors more. Anyone know of a yeast with similar flavor profiles to US-05 but can ferment to higher abv?
