No, I've made this beer 3 times. It peaks around 1-2 weeks in the bottle and then the hop flavor and aroma starts disappearing and it is all down hill from there.

In the immortal words of Yota, slightly revised: "Now, Young Brewer, you must patience learn."

And THAT is the hardest part of brewing! But, I've got enough homebrew around here to help with my lack of patience. I think we're all guilty of having a lack of that stuff!

I think it would be: "Patience, you must learn!"

I suggest going to the clinic and try stealing them from another Dr.


But if you're looking for patience, get another batch going asap. Overlapping them and building a pipeline is how you deal with the time it takes. Or just brew for a couple years and the specialness of it all goes away combined with you knowing you're doing you beer a disservice by drinking it early.

LOL... you guys should get into lambics! Try waiting upwards of three years.

I gotta turbid mash lambic in a barrel in my basement a few of us brewed up that's been down there about 9 months now and it has another 2+ years to go.

We'll do another one this summer and each following summer so we can blend them for guezes.

I'm going to do a barleywine sometime in the next few weeks and I plan on aging most of it for over 9 months, but I am quite certain that some of the bottles will not make it past 3 weeks.

... I'll bet you one bottle doesn't make it past three weeks... cause after you try a 3 week old barleywine, you won't want another one until they're ready.

You can drink some beers green... others, you can't. A Barleywine is one you can't. It'll be horrible.

Do you know that from personal experience? I'd very much like to hear about it!
