How high can you go?

I know some breweries are getting astronomical alc levels (30% and more) using who knows what methods. I wonder how high a home brewer can go using normal home brew methods.

Supposedly WLP099 can get up

Supposedly WLP099 can get up to 25% with incremental feedings. At that point you could probably eke out a few more points by icing it. I don't know if you could hit it consistently, but 30% may be within the reach of homebrewers.
