Reiterated Mash Barley Wine
« on: September 30, 2017, 07:11:27 AM »
Hi, looking for some feedback.  I've got a 1.050 base wort from my local brewery (all Maris Otter)
Planning on doing a reiterated mash with 5 lbs MO. 7.5 lbs wheat malt, and a lb of C-60. 
Hops: 1 oz CTZ at 60; 2 oz Mandarina at 15, 2 oz Mandarina at flameout, and 2 oz Mandarina dry hop at 7 days.
Think this will work out for an American BarleyWine?
This is grain, which any fool can use to make bread.  God, however, intended for it a higher purpose - Beer!

It will orke for a tasty beer that's somewhat in the mold of an Am BW.  With the wheat and Mandarine it won't be exact.
Life begins at 60.....1.060, that is!

Thanks, Denny.  BarleyWine was as close as I could come to a particular style...but I won't be entering any competitions with this, other than my homebrew club's "make something with this wort share."
