So i have searched on here for a good barleywine recipe, nothing really jumped out at me. I 'am searching for one that someone has brewed multiple times hopefully a timetested recipe, My b-day is in january and i'd like to get started now, i know its a little late but so what i like big beers at the 5 to 6 month rage. I have a whole pound of cenntenial. Help me out please!!
Off the top of my head (my computer is down for the while and my recipes with it)
18# Marris Otter
2# Brown Malt
(add some sugar if you want it dry or more ABV)
Mash at 149-151 depending on how dry you want it also.
90 min boil
1oz of Cent at 60
1oz of Cent at 10
1oz of Cent at dry hop
Sorry I dont have number since I can't get to my beersmith, but that should work for you. I am planning on doing something similar to this but with a higher OG and using EKG for the hops. If you have the software to check it, make it about 1.100 OG with about 60 IBU's from your first charge and the others should be good.
I love american barleywines, my fav. commerical examples is bigfoot from sierra, oldfoghorn from anchor steam,old guardian form stone. But my request was does ant body have a timetested reciepe, something you have made a few times and are sure of!!
