The wife has given me *permission* to buy my father's-day present (smoker) ahead of time, so I might be brewing up something in this vein ahead of time... got a full sack of pilsner malt and a lot of different hops kicking around...

I really like the smoked BW idea. little bit of smokey roastyness in it would be great I think. And the good thing about a September brew is that some of our hop harvests might just be ready depending on your location.

My initial inspiration for the idea was after seeing the Pastor's recipe . Tis an American BW.

Maybe we lean on this HBT recipe as the cornerstone and allow variations at the individual brewers will...

2.00 oz. Chinook Pellet 13.00 74.3 60 min.
1.33 oz. Northern Brewer Pellet 9.00 20.8 20 min.
1.00 oz. Northern Brewer Pellet 9.00 0.0 0 min.
1.00 oz. Northern Brewer Pellet 9.00 0.0 Dry Hop

Hmmm...thinkin about mixing up the hop sked a bit from BP's and making it West Coast Barleywine with some Centennial and Cascade. Or, maybe tryin' to figure out what they use in Gnarly Wine-it's described as 'piney'.

I am in, but have a concern that if we go with the equation of 9 we will be making a BW on the small end of the spectrum. I suppose we could go for a 1.099 OG with 99 IBUs, but maybe this is the 10/10/10 style, which we can always make way ahead of time.

The 9/9/9 may be better lived out as a different style. I still like the blond dopplebock myself. But will brew with the crowd and help with the recipe. Water into Barleywine is a nice starting place but I have some suggested changes if the forum is interested.

This is the point where several confused people should exclaim... Aha!

I knew the dopplebock idea would come back around Personally I was kinda looking foward to doing it as my first lager.

I do agree with EAC about maybe making the barley wine for 10/10/10, or even 11/11/11, and saving a big honking tripel for 12/12/12

Time to put that smoker to unintended uses!

I like the idea of a hoppy smoked BW with a hefty amount of rye. Not to style, and properly American.

Mention of Centennial, Cascades and fresh hops has me thinking about my plot.
I have a Chinnok, Centennial and Cascades plant growing like gang busters right now. All second year rhizomes so I should have a good crop. With an American style Barleywine I could drop a good chunk of my harvest into this beer fresh from the vine. Saves me the effort of drying.

As for the problem of fitting it in with 9's. Surely we can figure out something. 1.099 would be a decent place to start. I suppose a good 1.120 would be even better but I'm not going to wait that long for my first Barleywine.

Dopplebocks sound good but I won't be making one. I don't have or need temp control for my ales and I don't have enough interest in lagers to justify investing in one.
