    I never had good luck with sceeter pee. Maybe it is just me but the sulpher smell just never ends and the taste is not for me.

    How will you ferment that? What yeast? You'll need about 3 packs of dry yeast or 6 vials of liquid yeast.
    Yeah... screwed it up AND I learnt that my SAB pale malt has a lot less sugars than my previous batch, so my 1.160 became a 1.090.

    I used SO4 and London ESB.

    Still, a fun day overall and the beer is VERY actively fermenting!
    It's not the size of your equipment; it is what you brew with it.

    1.090 should end up close to 11%. 1.160 is VERY high gravity, and IMO would risk ending up with a lot of sugars left after the yeast taps out.

    Did my version of a cali common yesterday. Used Munich pale instead of SAB pale because I scored 25kgs a while back.

    I have brewed higher than 1.160 and it ended up at 1.020.

    I hope it doesn't dry out in bottles, because that means that more fermentation is taking place and I may have bottle bombs! O_o

    And that's quite sweet, no? That's dessert wine sweetness, and when it's sparkling and chilled the perceived sweetness is going to be almost overbearing.

    Many of the stouts I've made ended at 1020 and actually tasted perfect from what I want from a stout. Im not sure if it would have been worse or better if it did go down to 1010-1012

    You are forgetting the bitterness (hops/dark malt) that counters the sweetness. For a low IBU beer, like a pils, the beer would be very sweet. For a 92 IBU beer, it will not be sweet.
