So in order to get my Barley Wine project just right I will still have to use some DME to finish it off. And here I was hoping to go ALL grain.
1.1 is a heck of a # to hit.
I have an imperial pilsner that was AG in my 10g MLT that came out to be 1.086 with 21.5lbs.
Also using 100% fermentables such as honey, sugar, ect... does not mean you are not going AG. Its just a simple easy way to raise SG.
