thanks for the recipe.

Brewed this back in early May and have just entered it in the Arkansas State Fair competition. I'll let you know how it does, but I have high hopes. This is an excellent recipe and a great example of what an old ale should be.

I am thinking about brewing this today and pitching on a Wyeast 1968 cake. I have never done this before before but do I need to worry considering this yeast recommends a diactyl rest?

How would you put this against the likes of Curmudgeon?

im enjoying a glass of Curmudgeon right now and am also wondering how this recipe compares. Im not a fan so much of barley wines, and am pretty sure the Curmudgeon is close if not spot on. I jus prefer the more oaky and bourbon flavor of it.

Brewed this recipe today. Hoping for a Curmudgeonish outcome. Got a 78% efficiency. I used Maris Otter in place of the of Pale. Also, I used 1 lb of Brer Rabbit molasses in place of treacle and stirred it in at the beginning of the boil. For yeast to pitched WLP013 London Ale because it was rated a bit higher on tolerance. After three weeks I'm thinking for racking to secondary with some oak chips or shavings for a couple of weeks for that last little kick before kegging and enjoying.

Fingers crosses for a good outcome!
