Belly Up Barleywine

Source: Mark Stevens

Deep amber to light brown color with quite a lot of body, but somewhaat balanced by hops. Could possibly use a bit more hops, but I like lots of malt sweetness. Had a little problem with slow runoff on this one...

Mash water was treated with a bit of CaSO4 and CaCO3.

Mash out at 170 for 10 minutes, then sparge to collect about 6-1/2 gallons. Boiled 60 minutes with Eroica in the full boil length and Cascades in last 5 minutes. Force chill to 65, then pitched slurry of 1056. Fermented at 65-68 for 1-2 weeks, then same temp for another 1-2 weeks.
