I realize it’s a drawback, but I figure this is something the brewer/distiller could measure and theoretically they would have a larger volume of it than one bottle.


I probably mentioned this somewhere earlier in the thread, but brewers who make these wild claims about ABV have no reason to actually get it lab tested when they know the number will come back way lower than they’ve claimed. It’s good marketing (unfortunately) to claim you’ve got a 25% beer, whether or not it’s actually true.

Actually, I believe there is less than a half barrel left.

I’m not talking about actual HotD Dave. That should’ve been and maybe even was testing way back when it was made. I’m saying this for any homebrewers/homeicers out there.

Well the testing is done and the results are in. In a classic unsatisfying outcome the results pretty much split the difference between my guess (20%) and Joe’s (14.5%) coming in at tongue tingling 17.5% ABV.

Looking back through the thread MaxxDaddy looks to have been closest with his guess of 17.2%.

Other conclusions from the day of testing:

The FG of the ice distilled beer is 1.048 (which means I more than doubled the FG while only getting 1.75X more alcohol)

The Real Residual Extract (that is the FG not counting the alcohol) is 1.069+ (a bit of sugar burned to the side of the

The SRM is 93 (way over the ~30 Promash estimated for the base beer).

Great results, thanks so much for testing! I’m going to bookmark this page for next time...

From these results I’d say we can safely estimate the real Dave in the 20-22% range. He froze off 66% instead of 50% but there are almost certainly diminishing returns. Even if we assumed constant efficiency of about 75% (based on these results), the max he could hit would be 23.3% (again based on these results).

I would still have been a little skeptical of lab results by an "unknown" homebrewer, but knowing that it was AJ Delange who performed the tests, I have complete faith he carried them out properly on the appropriate equipment with great accuracy. He is/was a huge asset to the HBD...just read through the archives. Thanks for the update.
