An avid, ambitious homebrewer, I'm currently brewing on an all-electric system capable of 20+ gallon batches.

comment At what alcohol level does alcohol start to contribute sweetness?
@CDspace: if the Original Gravities were equal, then yes. However high ABV beers start out with a much higher OG and tend to finish with a somewhat higher FG than lower gravity beers. So even though they finish higher, they've got more ABV because they started so much higher.

comment Concerns with brewing indoors with propane
Everyone has to assess their own risk tolerance. The furnace in my basement is at a low point, which is the last place I want propane pooling. I'm not going to depend on random currents to prevent that. And yes, the photo is meant to be overly dramatic.

I made a few arguments against propane indoors in my answer to this question. YMMV, be safe.

The only thing I might add to this is to check the temp the bottles are carbonating at. They should be around 70F.

Good information, but airlock bubbling does not necessarily mean it's still fermenting. It could just as easily be CO2 coming out of solution as the beer changes temperature.
