American Barleywine


What I want to know is, how does the wort know exactly when my back is turned so it can instantly boil over? I never see it start to rise, but I turn to the sink for one second and when I turn around, the stove is covered with molten wort!


  • 3.3 pounds, American light malt extract syrup
  • 3.3 pounds, Coopers bitter ale kit
  • 3.3 pounds, Coopers Draught ale kit
  • 1 pound, amber malt extract
  • 3/4 pound, crystal malt
  • 2 ounces, Northern Brewer hops (boil)
