I rather like the idea of a "Revvy Memorial BW" but you have to be around to drink it in 5 years! Quit being such a puss and brew! I can tell you from having a wife who works in a cancer center that attitude plays a HUGE part in your health, if you accept defeat, then thats what you face.
Now can we come up with a recipe that will take 72 hours to start fermenting and then never bubble the airlock??

Um, well, we kind of do have the basic details in another thread...

Revvy, I love the idea of getting back into brewing with this beer. Here's to being around to enjoy it in five years and for a few more years after that!

Thanks, gang!!!!!

I forgot that the mods moved this thread I have a heart murmur and electrical blockage of the heart?!?!? to secret chit chat, and even though a couple have asked if I wanted it moved back, and I said yes, they keep forgetting to.

Basically it was discovered in July that I have 2 separate problems with my heart. Turns out I was born with a bicuspid aortic valve AND ALSO evidently I have Ideopathic, nonischemic cardiomyopathy. They think that the cardiomyopathy is not related to the valve, but was the result of a rogue infection (possibly even swine flu) that ended up knocking the crap out of my heart.

I went through a ton of tests, and was it looked like I was going to get the valve replaced sooner than later. But they realized that the heart damage wasn't directly related, and therefore the valve replacement won't more than likely make my heart any better. Since valve replacements are only good for a decade or 2 and me being young the cardiologist wants to hold off surgery as long as possible, and see if the copious meds I'm on can help my heart function improve (I'm only running 6 cylinders on an 8 cylinder engine. )

But there's only so much improvement my heart can do, and even with the inevitable valve replacement, they don't think I'll ever be "healthy" again. In fact it's a 30,30,30 proposition, 60% odds that I will stay the same or improve, and 30% I'll get worse.

I'm supposed to lose weight, and start walking (after being restricted for 6 weeks) and I see the docs again in November, and we see what's going on.

So it's been a pretty freaked out ride. And obviously as much as I'm on here, actual brewing and other things have been on the back burner.
But folks on here and facebook have been amazingly supportive during this time, as well as my family and my amazing girlfriend, who is sticking with me through this.


So, Thanks for all the kind words, I appreciate it beyond measure...now, help me come up with a recipe, gang!

Revvy,

I've never brewed a BW so I can't be much help with a recipe. I don't live in your neck of the woods so I can't come help brew. If, however, there is something else that I can do just let me know! Maybe I can help chip in for some of the ingredients or send you hops or something.

Oh, yeah, and I'd call it something like Bypass Barleywine, or Coronary Classic.

If it was me, I'd label it "I've Got A Heart On For You" and put a big heart in the middle of the label.

Her ya go Revvy, take it back to where it all began.

Anchor Old Foghorn Clone (All Grain)

21 lbs (9.45 kg) 2-Row Pale Malt
1 lb (0.45 kg) 80L Crystal

Mash at 148 F (64 C) for 60 minutes with about 7 gallons (29 L) water to collect 6.5 gallons (24.6 L) of first wort. (You may need two lauter tuns to do this if you choose to do an all grain recipe. Drained mash can then be sparged with 175 [79 C] water into another kettle to produce a "small beer.")

2.0 oz (56 g) Cascade pellet hops, 5.75% alpha acid (first wort) 37 IBU
1.0 oz (28 g) Cascade pellet hops, 5.75% alpha acid (45 min.) 18.4 IBU
1.0 oz (28 g) Cascade pellet hops, 5.75% alpha acid (30 min.) 10.5 IBU
2.0 oz (56 g) Cascade pellet hops, 5.75% alpha acid (dry)
1 Whirlfloc tablet or 1 tsp (5 ml) Irish Moss (20 min.)
California Ale Yeast

Boil wort 60 to 90 minutes with hop additions above. Cool to 68 F (20 C) and pitch a generous amount of yeast (pitching the dregs of a previous 5 gallon batch is recommended) and aerate that sucker like nobody's business. ferment at 68-72 F (20-22 C) rousing the yeast if fermentation appears to stall, for two or more weeks, then siphon into secondary. When gravity nears target final, siphon into another carboy onto dry hops and cold condition at 45 F (7 C) for 18 months. Package, condition and enjoy!

Original Gravity: 1.101 (25 P)
Final Gravity: 1.043 (11 P)
IBU: 65.9
