    Jeez I'm really feeling the pressure on this one :confused:

    For a bit of dad_of_jon style fun, how about a little "guess the final ABV" competition, because quite honestly I haven't a damn clue what this yeast'll do.

    Winner will recieve a couple of bottles of the finished product, or if it turns out undrinkably bad for some reason a can of Carlsberg Special Brew as a consolation prize :cheers3:

    Just enter your guess below to 2 decimal places (eg 12.38%). I'll be using the Brew United ABV calculator (accurate method).

    16.34% But I should maybe be disqualified as I'm the only person with attenuation data for the Saure kveik you pitched, it's only 1 brew though and it was a 1.050 beer not a 1.143 behemoth... :-)

    Fair plan, Saure's only meant to be good for 16% anyway... :-)

    How do you plan on carbonating this beer for bottle conditioning. Do you have to add extra yeast ?
