This is a barley wine recipe, I came up with a couple months back before I started all my reading on the subject, and before I cam to hbt. I kinda wanted it sweet, and not extremely hoppy, so this is what I came up with. By the way, in my early days I didn't know better, so I mashed at 158.

Recipe: Matt's Barleywine
Brewer: Matt C
Asst Brewer:
Style: English Barleywine
TYPE: All Grain
Taste: (35.0)

Recipe Specifications
--------------------------
Batch Size: 5.50 gal
Boil Size: 7.46 gal
Estimated OG: 1.124 SG
Estimated Color: 15.3 SRM
Estimated IBU: 43.9 IBU
Brewhouse Efficiency: 75.00 %
Boil Time: 90 Minutes

Ingredients:
------------
Amount Item Type % or IBU
18.00 lb Pale Malt (2 Row) US (2.0 SRM) Grain 75.79 %
2.00 lb Honey Malt (25.0 SRM) Grain 8.42 %
1.00 lb Caramel/Crystal Malt - 60L (60.0 SRM) Grain 4.21 %
0.75 lb Cara-Pils/Dextrine (2.0 SRM) Grain 3.16 %
1.00 oz Millenium [15.50 %] (90 min) Hops 33.2 IBU
1.00 oz Select Spalt [4.75 %] (30 min) Hops 7.3 IBU
1.00 oz Select Spalt [4.75 %] (10 min) Hops 3.4 IBU
1.00 items Whirlfloc Tablet (Boil 15.0 min) Misc
1.10 tbsp PH 5.2 Stabilizer (Mash 60.0 min) Misc
2.00 lb Brown Sugar, Light (8.0 SRM) Sugar 8.42 %

It's been in the bottle almost a month now, tried just to see where it is at. It's not entirely sweet as I would suspect now, but it's kinda rough. Not non-drinkable though. Think I got a buzz just taking a few sips....lol..

Let me know what you guys think.

What was the FG?

And did you really get 75% efficiency, collecting only 7.5 gal from a 22 lb grain bill?

I think you should have had more hops. But It cant be bad!

If it's good now, it will be better later. If it tastes like ass, then it's probably going to taste like muted ass later. I'm not an expert on barleywines, but I agree with mike, it needs more hops.

I think you've got an old version of the BJCP guidelines, English Barleywine is OG 1.080-1.120, IBUs 35-70, SRM 8-22 now.

You're high on gravity, and middling-low on IBUs. I prefer English Barleywines to American ones, but I'd still want to up those IBUs into the mid 50s.
