What's the biggest alcoholic beer you've made & yeast used

I recently did a Barleywine with an OG of 1.126 and FG of 1.020. The ABV was 13.91%

The yeast used was WLP001 CALIFORNIA ALE YEAST from a yeast cake on a DIPA. For the DIPA I started with 2 vials of WLP001.

I've done a few Russian Imperial Stouts that finished around 11.2-11.8%. I always pitched on a yeast cake from a prior batch. Last one was US-05

Denny's Old Stoner barleywine. 15%ABV OG 1.135 FG 1.021 pitched on US-05 yeast cake from 22 gallons of PYB (a plain yellow beer). I still have some of this beer left after all these years. It is fantastic.

Dennys Old Stoner is fantastic. That reminds me that I need to brew this one again.
