I think the Centennial & Chinook will completely overwhelm the Hallertauer & Saaz. I'd use all of the H&S at 6 minutes for the aromas. Other than that, I'd say you've got some major kind of Belgian barley wine going.

I agree. Your hop selection is sort of overlapping. Other than that I think this sounds like a really venturous good recipe. It kind of reminds me of my imperial, which smells great right now, but I haven't bottled, let alone tasted it yet. It sort of has a little bit of everything in it. Next time, maybe add a bit more kitchen sink though.

Really, I'd stick with it. Sounds good.

Looks like frankenstiens monster. "Frankenbeer", is what i would call it. Trying to clean out your fridge. Throw some christmas dinner leftover's in there. Might turn out a really good beer, Tell me how it turns out.

well It is finished!

This beer turned out OUTSTANDING. It was a little stronger than projected at 13.8%abv. But the heavy carbonation from the bottle condition and the touch of sweetness and just a tinge of hops. It was awesome. Sad to say that it went quick too

So I think I am off to the Microbrewery U-brew place up the street and see if I can recreate this in a 15 gallon set up with professional equipment and see if it tastes as good as the bathroom batch!

Maybe I will have some to share with you guys this time!!!

John
