Here is an interesting response I got from my buddy in Colorado. His club got 8 brewers together with an oak wine barrel, and they went HUGE, not just big. This sounds like the exact type of thing you are looking to do.



Barrel Aged EKG Barleywine

After trying so many barrel aged beers, and talking way too long about making one as a club project, we finally did it.* With a 15 hour brew day, seven homebrewers converged at my house and brewed 14 different batches of barleywine on our homebrew systems.* We blended the wort into different fermenters and pitched a huge slurry of Wyeast London ESB yeast #1968.* After a week of fermentation, I added another slurry of Wyeast American Ale yeast #1056.* I encourage any brewer on homebrew club to try this project.* Here is the recipe.*

Style: English Barleywine
TYPE: All Grain
Recipe Specifications:

Batch Size: 65.00 gal
Boil Size: 78.28 gal
OG: 1.120
FG: 1.038
Estimated Color: 11.6 SRM
Estimated IBU: 85 IBU
Brewhouse Efficiency: 65.0 %
Boil Time: 90 Minutes

33.00 oz Goldings, East Kent [6.50%]* (30 min). Hops 22.6 IBU
33.00 oz Goldings, East Kent [6.50%]* (15 min) Hops 14.6 IBU
14.00 tsp Gypsum (Calcium Sulfate) (Mash 60.0 min)
12.00 items Servomyces Yeast Nutrient (Boil 15.0 min)
1 Starter London ESB Ale (Wyeast Labs #1968) [2000 ML Starter Yeast-Ale]
4 Pkgs American Ale (Wyeast Labs #1056) [2000 ML Starter Yeast-Ale]

Total Grain Weight: 330.00 lb

Notes:
This recipe is for a Barrel Aged Barleywine, BABC club brew (2/3/07).* 14 different batches all brewed the same day on 6 different systems.* This brew was fermented in 5 different containers (14-20 gallons each).* Then the beer was racked (3/14/07) into the secondary, a Firestone Walker 60 Gallon American Oak Heavy Toast Barrel, where it currently is aging.

Sadly, experience wise, I am of no help. I'm still stumbling around in the lands of extract and " Gee I wonder what those hops will taste like ".

But I could not be silent and not wish you the best - since I joined here Revvy has been a great fount of knowledge, but more so a source of support and affirmation, not only for me, but for others in posts I read.

I wish you the best , whole heartedly, and am sure that whatever may come, whatever you do, that the big brew day will be a wonderful time with friend sharing a passionate hobby, and a day you will cherish.

And I hope you live so long that your great great grandkids hear the tale of that massive brew project you did back when you were a spry 45 years old ....

I have no experience with BW recipes but I am planning my first this year. I would love to be able to brew the same recipe you choose to be able to participate in the idea and enjoyment of a great brew.

For all else are my thoughts and prayers to a fellow brewer. May the mash tuns be filled to capacity and the glasses held high as this will be a brew to remember!

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!
Sorry to hear about this about your heart problems. I think your SWMBO is right and that you need to do something therapeutic. Nothing like brewing to do that. I like you 6 cylinder analogy and think you should use that as your starting point. Have your starting gravity be 1.168. (1 revvy, 1 heart, running on 6 cylinders on an 8 cylinder heart.) That will be a big worthy barleywine that will age nicely for 5 years. Maybe something around 100 IBU's. The Overhaul Barleywine.

I just subscribed to this thread to find out what you decide to end up brewing. I want to brew the same thing on the same day as you, so I can hoist one in five years to celebrate your continued health and that you are still posting on this board. It will also be a celebration beverage for my life. I feel that my life will be vastly different in 5 years, one way or another, so I want to celebrate in five years my new (and better) life also!
