Soak the pearl barley overnight in the refrigerator, mix it into a starchy glue using a blender. Mash the pearl barley with the grains. Boil 1-1/2 ounces of Hallertauer with the wort. Add 1/4 ounce of finishing hops in last 10 minutes and steep 1/4 ounce after boil is complete. Pitch yeast at about 76 degrees.

I put the fermenter in fridge for 23 days, then racked to secondary for another 49 days before bottling.
