Beer Style: American Barleywine
Recipe Type: extract
Yield: 5 US gallons
This barleywine, which I've recently named "Blind Squirrel Barleywine" took a first place at the California State comps at Stern grove, SF this fall, and just recently won the AHA's first-ever barleywine competition. I call it blind squirrel because, it's the first brew I've ever done which has won anything.... which proves only that even a blind squirrel sometimes finds the acorn.
Primary fermentation - glass for 5 days at 65 degrees. Secondar in glass for 16 days at 65 degrees. Wort was boiled in 4 gal. pot (3 1/2 volume) with 2 gal. water added to primary fermenter.
