JJ's Barleywine (NHC 2010 Strong Ale Category)
« on: March 10, 2011, 03:50:18 pm »
I'm thinking of making a 3-gallon batch. Anyone else (besides the award-winning brewer :) ) make this and can comment? I like English barleywine and want a batch I can lay in til Xmas.

I'm thinking as a 3-gallon batch I could up the 2-row to the maximum I could squeeze into my 5-gallon mash tun... I'm guessing the LME is about mash tun space.

Yes, mash what you can.  Some have to use some extract to get to the target OG.  Some breweries were said to do this for their biggest beers.
