invert sugar will ferment out cleanly 100%. other sugars could possibly leave a slight flavor. sometimes you may even want this.

it's not a huge difference and i wouldn't be overly concerned with it. it's just that i'm amazed out how clean the dark strong came out.

I was thinking when I try this recipe to use honey hoping to add another level of flavor. I'm not sure if it will balance. What do you think?

sure! i'd add some by stepping up fermentation after it's been in the primary for about a week. just pasteurize it in a small amount of water and dump it in.

make sure to let it ferment out completely. total time in the primary would probably be about 2 months. and don't be afraid to rouse that yeast up and keep your fermentation going!

I had thought about a late addition like an extract, but in the primary sounds like a better plan.

it works wonders. my friend is trying this method to "step up" a barleywine (all extract) and get it >20% ABV.

I thought I found another recipe but it ends up being the same as the first one posted. I did get the Gulden Draak recipe also. After playing with it in beersmith my problem is trying to figure out how much 1-1/4 cup of wheat DME weighs since beersmith wont accept the volume measure for DME priming. Anyone know that conversion?

i personally don't use DME for priming anymore...had a few bad experiences with high unfermentables. corn sugar works just fine.

no way to know what 1¼ cup is, go by weight. if you're talking about the beer captured gulden draak clone, i made that once. it's been sitting under the steps in the basement for almost a year. can't wait to see how it turns out!

I think they specified the wheat DME for the wheat flavor and coudiness, but I respect your experienced veiw. The GD recipe I found was in Clone Brews. ABV is too low though. After tweaking it I hope it doesn't turn out to be clown brew. I figured at least a one year age, maybe 16 months.

Tomorrow I brew this. I switched up the hops though. Green Bullet instead of Brewers Gold and Williamette to replace the Styrian Goldings. This recipe is over extending my tun capacity for mash out by 1/2 gallon but since I'm fly sparging I'm not to worried.
Revvy I hope you are up for a beer trade next year when this batch has finished aging. I'm hoping to send a few out with the 9-9-09 barleywine trade also. Its is sure to be a good beer.
