More Powerful than a Locomotive

The Belgian Golden Strong Ale spent a week in primary fermentation and ten days in secondary.  Today it was moved to the keg where it will be cooled and carbonated.  Belgian ale yeast can handle booze better than most frat boys and went Beast-mode on the high original gravity leaving the final beer with 8.8% ABV.  This might seem high but it is right in the middle of the style guideline of 7.5-10.5% for this type of beer.  This beer style is the strongest thing from Belgium since Van Damme.  The keg will be pressurized to 10 PSI as Belgian Strong Ales are highly carbonated.
