Oh, 1.080. I see. I misread that as "1.008"...so I assumed you were just messing with us.

ohh. He is talking about a final gravity of 1.08? not 1.008? That changes things a lot!

"Strong and bitter" are rather incomplete tasting notes. 14 days of fermenting for such a large beer may not be optimal fermentation, especially at 78 degrees.

I'll move this to the "recipes" forum, and out of the database until it's a proven winner. Just let me know when to move it back into the database.

That's an attenuation 55% That has to be massively sweet, even with the IBUs. It's a big, under attenuated barleywine.

-edit- My math was backwards, the Apparent Attenuation is more like 45%. Looks like the yeast went after the simple sugars and then quit.
