I plan on making a bloody Mary pale ale soon. I was gonna add tomatoes to the boil along with some peppers. Then I would add peppers soaked in vodka to the secondary.

Barleywines are supposed to be sweet and less hoppy than a IPA. The high alcohol also contributes to the taste. It is also aged for more than a year.

Did you taste it? If not, go ahead and taste it. Thats the only way to confirm an infection. If it taste ok then skim that crap off the top and bottle it.

It's my first time making mayhaw. I have made 2 batches of grape concentrate. I just began home brewing and making wine about 6 months ago. So I'm still new to this and have a lot more learning to do.

Yeah I really never heard of anyone boiling the berries,, but I figured it would kill any bacteria on them. I didn't want my wine to get infected.

Oh yeah, I used about 2 pounds of sugar. I ran out of cane sugar so I had to use a little corn sugar. I don't think that would make a difference though.

Mayhaw berry

Check out this mayhaw berry I just racked. The color is very interesting. Has anyone else had this color before when making mayhaw berry wine?

Yep, he is the barefoot guy.
We were using hop pellets so we didn't have any issues with it getting clogged. But I'm sure if we were to use whole leaf hops it might be a problem.

Thanks. This is my 2nd attempt at this recipe. The first time i went way overboard with the hops. I thought this time it would be best to only use a single hop.
