I realize there is a Mr. Beer sticky already, but I don't really have time to browse the 4,000 posts looking for an answer to my question, so I'm just going to throw it out there.

I've been brewing 2-gallon batches in my Mr. Beer fermentors for a while, but my next batch is going to be a little heavier fermentibles-wise than my previous batches.

Estimated OG is 1.073
Estimated FG is 1.020
Estimated ABV is 7.1%

Has anyone used a Mr. Beer for a batch in this range or higher? If so, did you have any problems?

Thanks!

As others have said... "the only thing you can't do in a Mr. Beer fermenter is brew a 5 gallon batch." So yes, I have brewed many ales with that high and higher OG. No problems.
