I decided to make a strong ale, similar to Arrogant Bastard. The recipe was expected to yield about 1.080 original gravity.
After the 1 hour boil, I had around 4.25 gallons, at 1.080...just as I had planned. Mash temp was at around 155 deg.
...And, here is the cool thing. After a week fermenting, the gravity was as 1.014. This is about 9% ABV. I racked to secondary and will now wait a few more weeks.
