    It's what the bottle said. I loved the buzz off of it. It's thinner than I expected for a beer of such great flavor. We probably drank it quicker as a result.

    for sure! The buzz from it was awesome and came in with no warning from out of nowhere.

    Yeah, the bottle says 12.5% but I do believe its way off. It's pretty difficult to determine the ABV on barrel aged beers, let alone several BA beers blended for the Firestone 14. You've always gotta figure in the bourbon from the barrel, which is tough since its always different.

    It's really not. It's the same as determining non barrel aged.

    Triple Scale Hydrometer for the win!

    Hmm, I recall an interview where determining the Black Tuesday ABV in particular was difficult because of the additional booze from each barrel, and that the figure they went with was an estimate and not entirely accurate. Something like an added 3% because of the barrel alone. I would imagine this applies for several barrel aged beers?

    Az, I expect more from you. Next time post a clever use for the hydrometer.

    I'll double check

    ABV is determined by comparing orginal gravity with final gravity. or on a triple sale hydrometer, there is a built in ABV %

    It could be an issue with losing some water to the barrel or gaining some fermenable sugar but that would only increase alcohol % further I am guessing.

    Alrighty. I recall something about a White Labs company which gives you a definite figure, but apparently its too expensive.

    Az, you were right.

    The barrel adds alcohol (from what was previously in there) plus some sugars the beer extracts from the wood
