    Thanks, I'll brew a small batch and top it up then. Or, I have a brown ale that is a very
    similar recipe( same yeast, hops but less, darker crystal and larger percent of grist than in
    the barleywine) ...

    Ended up adding entire LME at the end of the boil with no problems. Tasted great when I was
    transferring it to the barrel for aging.

    Is it necessary to have a barrel full to the bung for long term aging or is a couple inches of

    I recently purchased a just emptied 10 gal American rye whiskey barrel. Last night I
    transferred an American barley wine into the barrel, ~10.5 gal went in the barrel but I still

    I have about 3 gallons in my pot at the end of brewing. After adding 4 lbs of LME and my I/C, I

    hops.I assume ...

    My only concern is that I'm talking about adding 9 lb of extract. I'm not necessarily worried
    but I have a feeling that the extract will drop the temp significantly to the point that I
    don't think I w...

    I would just hold off all LME till probably, the last 10-15 minutes-ish. Since you already have
    wort from the mashtun you don't need to add any LME near the start to make sure the hop
    utliziation is g...

    I will be brewing a 10 gal. batch of American style barleywine this weekend and inorder to get
    my gravity up in the range where I want it (1.090), I need to add some LME to the fermentables
    (looks to ...

    274311I was looking at a few pictures today and this is one of the reasons I love oiled cherry
    so much. The color is several shades darker and the wood grain more complex after just 1 year.
    Still chug...
