Rumour has it that a Barrel is in the offing.
Starting an interest thread initially suggestions of a beer might be useful also.

Sorry, I meant #100

I worked out a recipe to 23liters from a podcast with the brewers a while back:

8.2kg pale ale malt
930g wheat
190g chocolate malt
Chinook to 80IBU @60min
50g centennial @15min
25g columbus @flameout/whirlpool
25g chinook @dryhop
WLP007 or similar Dry English Ale Yeast.

Beersmith puts that at about 9.3%
They recommended conditioning it for at least 6 months.
There's plenty of alcohol and hops to keep it safe

I guess they are high alpha but would have thought there would be more hops. That's not scaled down from a commercial volume?

When would you dry hop? Before, during or after?

Also - question for rm - what kind of barrel?

yeah it's scaled down from commercial, so i'm not sure what adjustments would be needed.

I'm in as well.  My thinking is though, given what happened with the last barrel that rather than brewing clean beers until a bad batch turns it sour and ruins the barrel we should control what bugs go into the barrel from the start.  I'm thinking we could use Brett rather than going full sour though (I'd say there's a chance that those wine barrels may have Brett in them anyway) - so you could do a range of different beers and see what they're like with a bit of Brett character added.

[Edit: poor lad was on drugs]

mr hoppy

What size is the commercial batch?

I'm curious about the chocolate malt. Had a stone dips after seeing that recipe and definitely thought one of the flavours was a nice subtle choc malt.

Hey LE that's nogne o 100, not 500. 500 is a dipa and 100 is (was) a barley wine. Absolutely fantastic beer. Big and bold. If that's what you were thinking of I'd be well up for it.


Oops saw where you said 100 now.

That beer rocks.

Ok. Barrel now full of metabisulphite/citric solution so will leave like that until we figure out our next steps.

johnrm

Seeing as there is just they 4, 50l each!
Recipe next.

I'll see if I can shake the tree on WhatsApp.
