I scaled to 15 because most people that normally do 10 gallon batches should have no problem accommodating 26 pounds of grist. A 10 gallon batch of the 999 Barleywine had nearly 30 lbs of grist. Depending on your boil kettle size, you should be able to do a 15 gallon batch (maybe with the help of a little FermcapS to assist in prevent boilover).

From most accounts, this beer is a huge hit and goes fast...much like Apfelwein. Sounds like a perfect candidate to brew copious amounts in time for Summer !!

Had to tweak the hop additions to get close to the original IBUs. I also bumped the Cara-Pils from 1.875 (Actual scale) to 2 lbs for ease of measurement but my Vienna is a little lighter Lovibond than BierMuncher's recipe calls. My ending numbers; SRM, IBU, OG, FG, ABV, etc are all within statistically insignificant values of BMs. I have a vial of 1056 and 2 packets of US-05, so thats what I am using for yeast.

Sounds to me like there's nothing left but to spark the flame.

Made this the past weekend using Hop plugs of the respective hops. Worked out wonderfully since 2 plugs = 1oz and I could just drop a plug in. The color change of before and after fermentation/settling is pretty neat. Can't wait to grab that first sample.

Just out of curiosity, could anyone who has brewed this and Edworts Haus Pale Ale All grain give me a taste comparison between the two?
Thanks =]

Ed's is maltier and leans more towards a (hoppy) west coast pale ale. This recipe is a bit more crisp. Depending on your taste, either is a great selection.

I've brewed two 10g batches of this now. With just slightly different hopping schedules.

I must +1 it! If you need a crowd pleaser on short notice this is a great grist to start with. The hops can be played with, if you like, and even the yeast of course. My personal pref is for Wyeast 1056 because it's very clean.

You should really try it. Your friends will think you are a genius.

This summer I'm going to make it fruity too, strawberries or rasperries I think.

BM, I've got a buttload of Great Western Munich which is 9L I believe. Would this work fine in replacement of the Crystal 10L?

Absolutely. A slight shift away from a caramel sweet, to a rich malt. And by slight, I mean it won't even be detectable.
