So I made a Vanilla/Bourbon stout...ABV before Bourbon addition was 6.5....I added 400ml of bourbon and barrelled. Any ideas how much the bourbon will alter the ABV...ve around 20l of finished beer. Its been in the barrel for around a month now so plan to have a cheeky taster!

20L @ 6.5 has 1300ml of alcohoh in it. Youve just added 400ml of 40% ie 160ml so you now have 1460 in 20400 or pretty much bang on 7.15%
