Beer Style: American Barleywine  (19C)
Recipe Type: all-grain
Yield: 5 US gallons

American Barleywine


More work than a regular batch, but worth it once in a while.

Looking back, I think it would be possible to mash a few more pounds of grain and leave out the extract. Also I'm not sure the Cascades were the right choice for dry-hopping in this beer, but I'm sure they will fade with time. Right now it's two months old and I've only tasted one!! 47 bottles of beer on the wall...


  • 13 lb pale 2-row malt
  • 1 lb crystal malt (40L)
  • 4 oz chocolate malt
  • 3 lb pale dry malt extract
  • 1 lb dark brown sugar
  • Sierra Nevada ale yeast (Wyeast 1056)

Mash water: 4 gallons
Mash-in: 130-121F for 30 minutes
Starch conversion: 150F for 2.5 hours
Mash-out: 170 for 5 minutes
Sparge: 4 gallons at 170F

Boil three hours total. Add extracts and hops with one hour remaining.

Primary fermentation: Kraeusen fell in 6 days.. your mileage may vary.

Secondary: Racking restarted fermentation -- next time I do this I will rack *and* splash going into secondary, since the gravity at this point was only down to 1.060. Beer stayed in secondary for about 6 weeks total.

Primed with 1/2c corn sugar.
