  1. Alcohol content in home brew beer average about 4.4% to 8% (abv) and pale lager averages 5%, is what most home brew beer contains. Yeast does not reproduce and therefore cannot produce alcohol above 12%. More recently, yeast strain’s have been developed, which can go higher. Champagne yeasts, can be used to artificially increase the alcohol content.
