I enjoy making and drinking lots of different beer, but my favorites tend to be Belgian style ales. But then again, there's nothing like a nice fresh IPA.

I won a "best of show" for a Southern English Brown ale, which I then got to help brew at Howe Sound Brewing. London Town Brown: https://untappd.com/beer/320937

comment Calculating Alcohol by Volume
If you're going to divide by 10 after, why don't you simply do (og - fg) * .11? :-)

comment What is a “blonde” beer, and how do you make it?
But Leffe Blonde isn't a BJCP 6B Blonde Ale, it's an 18A Belgian Blond Ale. Very different.

Have you checked the specific gravity? I would guess that it is done fermenting.

Split your batch in 2, do half with candi and half with table sugar, and then tell us the answer! :-)
