So, following everyone's advice, I went to recarb my barleywine. I opened the first bottle and heard a slight hiss. That's when I realized I ended up with this:



And it tastes great. Big sweet, malty nose. It has a slight bourbon flavor (which is why I'm super excited to try the gallon of this I aged on oak. And I think it'll only get better over time.

Also, I checked my notes and this is actually 10.4% ABV, which is probably why it took 3 1/2 months to carb.

Default Relieved to see this

I have an 11.2% Barleywine sitting right at 40 days. I was worried that I messed something up (although I was not under the influence of homebrew at bottling and distinctly remember measuring out the sugar as it was a 3 gallon batch).

Now I see that I just need to develop some patience. Any tips on that would be appreciated.
