I guess I am the opposite. Most of the beers I brew are under 1.060.

I'm with you there.  1.060 is more like my top end.

Oh, I thought it was 60 IBU!
I always kid about my wife Melissa (soon to be 20 years, heck she got me my first homebrew kit - it's all her fault!). When we walk into the Falling Rock Tap House (our local) - she asks "why don't you get me something light, like a Hercules".

I guess I'm 'diversified'.  I have 3 taps in the house and 2 party taps in one of my lagering fridges - the 3 in my house are usually <1.064, with really on my IPA bringing it up that high, otherwise its usually 1.050-1.055 or so.

Then in the 2 picnic taps outside, I keep big beers in 3gal kegs - Old Ale, IIPA, Baltic, RIS, etc. which is all >1.080.  The rest of the batch I bottle.

I just don't like feeling 'it' after one pint anymore, I still brew, buy,drink  and love big beers, but much more conservatively than I used to.

You could always pull a half pint.  ;)  ...Not that I would.

I don't drink as many as I used to either, generally 2 beers a night now but every once in a while I'll drink 3 to 5 beers... like last night.   :D


I suppose I just need to use more specialty malts and I'll get more flavor but I do like having a nice little buzz going without having to drink 4 or 6 beers.    ;D

What is really ironic is that I only have two beers on tap that are under 1.060, and one is 1.059.  :-\

My house beers are all under 1.060, but I enjoy playing with big beers too.  I generally bottle those so I can have a pint or two of something substantial when I feel like it.

I'm definitely moving up the OG and IBU scales though, my tastebuds must be getting worn out.  I still remember posting what I thought was a hoppy pale ale recipe a couple years ago, and Denny said to call it "Wheres The Hops".  Now I have about six pounds of hops in the freezer, so I know where they are at this point.
