Batch 29

Classification: barleywine, all-grain

Source: Brian Bliss ( Issue #930, 7/22/92

The beer tastes more like a port than a barleywine. Very little hop character. It's a belgian strong ale like I wanted, but not quite what I was aiming for. I'll see what time does to her.



Add salts and gypsum to 4--1/2 gallons 145 water to make mash at pH 5.3. Protein rest at 126--120 for 30 minutes. Mash at 153 for 2 hours 50 minutes. Mash out at 165--170. Sparge to make 8--1/2 to 9 gallons wort. Add Glenbrew extract and boil 90 minutes. Add 1/2 ounce Fuggles and 1/2 ounce Hallertauer 15 minutes into boil. Add another 1/2 ounce Hallertauer and 1 ounce Fuggles for the last 40 minutes. In the last 10- -15 minutes, add remaining hops. Chill and pitch yeast. Ferment at 65-- 70F for 6 weeks. Bottle, priming with corn sugar.
