This story always intrigued me: one of my coworkers made wine with a bunch of friends as a hobby. They experimented with different concoctions...one day they tried invert sugar as an fermentation ingredient and got something like 19-20% alcohol as a result.

I've always presumed that you can't go much beyond 15 - 16%. Any vintners out there that put the cork into the bottle of this story?
