Just had to drive home by Bud drinking brother and Coors Lite drinking brother-in-law after a few of my just tapped Imperial Bastards. First off, I can't believe they even liked it. It's 10% ABV and 110+ IBU's for God sakes! A far cry from what their used to. But they actually loved it. So do I. It's fantastic. They had 4 pints and were staggering around like a couple of college kids. Gotta love it. I on the other hand was not effected by a couple of them...

Here's the recipe. If you like Arrogant or Double Bastard, you'll love this stuff. Not really meant to be a clone of DB but I tried to make it somewhat similar. I ran out of Chinook so I added some Warrior, Columbus and Centennial. Boy am I glad I did.:


Imperial Bastard

FG: 1.024

8.0 oz Barley, Flaked (1.7 SRM) 2.76 %
8.0 oz Lyle's Golden Syrup (SRM)2.76 %
0.50 oz Chinook [15.00 %] (90 min) (Mash Hop) 6.3 IBU
0.50 oz Chinook [15.00 %] (90 min) (FWH) 18.8 IBU
0.75 oz Warrior [16.70 %] (60 min) 42.9 IBU

0.50 oz Chinook [13.00 %] (Steep 30 min at FO)
0.25 oz Columbus [15.80 %] (Steep 30 min at FO)
1.25 oz Centennial [9.00 %] (Dry Hop 10 Days)
0.75 oz Warrior [16.70 %] (Dry Hop 10 Days)

The malt bill looks similar to an English Barleywine that I'm planning. How long did you age before drinking?

It was 2 months brew to tap. It's damn near a barleywine.

Mmmm, that looks like a great recipe. Did you just pitch the yeast straight from the packs or did you make some kind of starter?

That looks fantastic. The hop schedule is impressive!

Isn't it funny watching BMC'ers get on their first high ABV beer?

We once had company that discovered that she liked belgian tripels. After she slammed 3 in the span of about an hour, she spent the rest of the evening passed out in the recliner.
