Im new to reading the recepies... did you only make 3 gallons? This would be perfect for while I work on my keggle!

Brewsmith 04-18-2008 06:32 PM

Yes, I only made 3 gallons. It was about all the grain my mash tun could hold. I submitted it to the NHC this year, so I'm waiting to hear about the score, now that it's a year and a half old.

claphamsa 04-18-2008 07:02 PM

could I just double everything? to make it 6 gallons?

Brewsmith 04-18-2008 07:18 PM

Yes. I wish I had more. After giving away some and submitting bottles to competition, I'm almost out.

claphamsa 04-18-2008 07:25 PM

Awesome! Thanks :)

I'm searching for a barleywine recipe to brew this summer and found this one... two questions though.

Why did you boil for 120 min? And what were the results from the judging after it was a year and a half old?

doggage 01-28-2011 07:25 PM

Speaking for myself: I brewed a JW Lees Harvest Ale clone and in my research I read that Barleywines need buscuitiness and that is developed by a longer boil. Boiling longer also helps drive up the gravity/ABV.

this looks interesting and very possible for me to pull off. i like the fact its ready for bottling/kegging in around 2 months.

how long does it need conditioning in the bottle?

anyone care to comment on taste and arroma?

I am going to be making my first Barley Wine this holiday season. What temperature did you cellar at? Can you provide a bit about how you stored this beer?

Cheers and many thanks,
