Default Barleywine---1.107 to 1.004??

I mashed
11.5 lbs. pale ale malt
.8 lbs C-20
.4 lbs C-40
.25 ;bs. Caravienna

85 IBUs worth of hops

2 hours at 149*.

I boiled 6.5 gallons down to 4 (purposely)

1 packet of re-hydrated Notty with a couple of scoops of "conditioned" Notty thrown in for good measure.

After one week, presuming my hydrometer is correct, it went from 1.107 to 1.004. I was hoping for 1.014. I'm hoping this will age out quite nicely. Thoughts?? After aging, I plan to oak for a bit.

I'd rather have a dry barleywine then underattenuated syrup.


****EDIT*** My hydro is off, I'm glad since I didn't want that dry of a BW!!

Sounds like a dry barleywine, as you wished for. Did you taste it when you took a gravity reading?

I use 2 oz of toasted american oak cubes for my oaked beers. It seems to do the trick. I soak them for 10 days. You may want to do more and age it.

It is only a week from the boil, so it is hotter than a $2 pistol.

I'm just hoping it won't be too dry. Aging will tell.

Wow, that's pretty ridiculous. Have you checked your hydrometer calibration with water recently?

me thinks something is not right here. Your recipe is about 13lbs, and even with 100 eff, you couldn't get your og with a 5-5.5g sv. i brew 1.039 sg blonde ale that only end 1.006-1.005 mashed at 148 with 93% two row and a little 10 degree. maybe look into hydrometer issues, but I can't believe that big a beer would ever finish that low even with large amounts of simple sugar.

He boiled 6.5 gallons down to 4 gallons. With beer smith at an 83% efficiency he would be at 1.108 .

That is insane, try checking the hydro.
