Beer Recipes / Nov/Dec 2010 Barleywine recipes
« on: October 22, 2013, 04:26:22 PM »
Has anyone tried any of Mr. Strong's Barleywine recipes in his Nov/Dec 2010 "All About Barleywines" article? I was debating between the American Barleywine and the Hybrid Barleywine recipes.

There is also a Belgian barleywine recipe, but I've narrowed it down to the two listed above.

I've never brewed a barleywine before, so I'd appreciate any insight or feedback on these recipes!


General Homebrew Discussion / Clear Weizen beer?

Not sure why, but it seems like my weizen beers always turn out clear. Here are the details...

Wheat- Dingemans,  5 lb
Lager Malt-6 Row Briess,  5 lb
Saaz-Pellet, 0.25 oz, 120 min
Perle-Pellet, 0.4 oz, 30 min

Step mash, 133° for 15 min, direct heat to 148° for 20 minutes, finally direct heat up to 155° for 30 minutes. o.g. 1.048, no filtering. After ~ a month or so in the keg, I get perfectly a clear weizen pour, and not much head retention either. Serving temp is about 45°, and I hand wash my beer glasses.

I thought weizens were supposed to be a bit cloudy!!! Thoughts?
