I guess my terminology was off. There are several beers from Belgium that are fermented twice, once at the brewery and again in the bottle. The double fermentation increases the alcohol level but not by much. John

Not just Belgium, but yes, it's called bottle conditioning. Doesn't really increase the alcohol level notably like you said. Most homebrew is bottle conditioned too. You just add some sugar at bottling time to give the yeast a little more fuel to make some co2.

Great discussion. But would be even better after consuming Boris Doris etc
Dan, I am up for sending out a few BORIS, DORIS, TORIS, and QORIS if a few of us want to give them a try?

And then we can do the barrel aged version of each.
