sounds good - my 2005 barleywine is all gone so i need to get a replacement started.
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!
