I racked the 999 Barleywine to keg from secondary today...it was absolutely the best beer I have ever tasted. The only other barleywine I've had is the St. Arnold's Divine and this kicks the crap out of it.

Thanks BP for the amazing recipe and BM for organizing everything! And here's to hoping i can actually wait until next September to drink it!

Excellent. Good to get back in the game. Unfortunately, I'm probably out for a couple of months. Stinkin' work.

That too. Between being busy at work, Christmas coming up with two kids, etc., etc. it's hard to find money for brewing.

Of course, the $350 I spent on clothes yesterday could have been put to better use. I tried to convince my wife, but apparently I needed new clothes more than a bigger brewpot. Oh well.

Alamo! Long time no see!

'grats on the 9-9-9. I have tasted a lot of great barleywines at the Zealots. All of my favorites are homebrewed, I am rarely impressed with a commercial barleywine ('cept for the Real Ale Sisyphus). I am fairly certain that this brew is going to stack up quite well; if only we could buy beer aging extract to add to the brew....
