It is 15 months old now, but I was drinking it at 3 months. Pitch a sh1t load of yeast and aerate like crazy.. Mine was "done" in 2 weeks.

I was kind of going for a monster steam beer with the hopping.

How well does the maple come through? Maple syrup is about as expensive a fermentable as you can find, I'd hate to add it and then not get any real character from it (which is what happened to one of my early batches).

I think it adds a sub-tone. Anchor uses 10% maple diuted to the OG of the brew in their Old Foghorn. That is basically what I do as well.

I may forgo the maple and use another fermentable in its place. I have to think about using maple since it's such a distinct flavor.

Sounds like a few others may be interested in making their barleywines soon too. I'd be up for a barleywine exchange around Christmas, if anyone else wants in.

I have wanted to try palm sugar, maybe that would be a nice experiment.

I'm thinking some Candi sugar to give it that nice wine-like Belgian quality.

Do you think that a yeast alternative to Cali might ferment it down more?

It smacked it right down with my batch, although I would have to hunt to give the actual numbers. But there are yeasts that have better reputations for attenuation. Candi sugar might be nice in cutting the thickness of this brew, which is why the monks use it in the first place.

Interesting. Well, I think that the sub to Candi sugar is the only I'll make if I decide to go with this recipe. I'll let you know if I go with it or not. Thanks!

I would be interested in the recipe so go ahead and post it.

Cheese I would definately be interested in a barleywine swap. I am thinking of maybe doing 2 different batches but who knows. If we get enough people interested maybe we could organize a HBT 2007 holiday barleywine swap
