Bottled the IPA and Belgian Dubbel- Batch 50 and 51

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!
