For the past three years, I've made a Barley Wine (American) on New Year's Day.  This year around X-mas I plan on doing a little tasting with some friends to compare the past three years and try to fill out some score sheets.

I know this might be hard since this is your first batch, but leave it alone for two weeks.  It'll probably be done at that point.  Opening the fermenter a bunch of times can just introduce more opportunites for oxygen and contamination.

What temperature was your sample?  A higher temp than 60 will give you a lower reading.

You might want to try using only 1- 2 oz of hops @ 5min. and 1-2oz @ flameout.  You could be getting grassy, vegetal flavors.

Since you changed either the malts, hops, or yeast, you have made it your own.  I don't think you need to mention the original recipe.  Remember, they got their idea for that recipe probably from another recipe.

I usually use RO water and adjust it according to style.  However, I can't this Sunday and I was wondering how much Campden to use for 8 gallons?

« on: September 09, 2012, 12:00:02 AM »
Quite often do I let the wort sit unpitched and at 60F or lower overnight. This is when the yeast hasn't settled enough yet or I'm too tired to finish.

Let me guess...when you have done a triple decoction mash ;)


Possibly add the midnight wheat at the end of the mash to limit the character while still getting the color.
Great suggestion, I would do this with the Chocolate malt as well.  IMO the roast flavor will clash with the Columbus hops.

Ingredients / Re: Rye?
« on: September 01, 2012, 01:12:33 PM »
You should post the rest of your recipe.  When I use rye, I won't use less than 15% rye in my malt bill and usually around 20%.  It doesn't look like you used that much IMO, but then again I like rye.  I don't use flaked rye, so I don't know anything about that.

Not always the case.  I entered a Foreign Export Stout in the NHC and the local fair that was close to 9% abv.  In both comps, the judges knocked it for being too high in alcohol.
