Saturday I bottled my IPA and my Dubbel. The IPA I named “God is Good IPA”, and of course I’m sticking “Rob’s Belgian Dubbel” for the dubbel. The IPA final gravity came to 1.022, which doing straight math would give a 6.3% alcohol by volume, but I didn’t do the initial and final before and after I added the brown sugar, so this number should be much higher. I’m guessing closer to 7%, but I’m feeling lazy and don’t want to do the math right now.
The Dubbel ended at 1.016 final gravity, giving me a 6.8% alcohol by volume. Either my initial was off or Rob got most of the sugars in his batch when we split it, cause this thing should be a lot higher. Last time we did it I got 8.9%. Though this is annoying, I will still enjoy this beer, so I’m not going to let it get me down. I have two great beers to drink!
