But don't let the good looks catch you off guard. This is a powerful beer with a bitter, yet balanced bite. Recipe includes 12 lbs of malt extract with Caravienne and Caramunich malts for steeping. Huge flavor with a good balance between malt and hops. This will age gracefully for years. Not for everyone, but those who like Barley Wines love this recipe.

Like BW and I’ve used this before and love it

This is a great recipe, not too sweet like some barley wines can be.

Barley Wine is great beer
I have it in a secondary fermenter now and I did take a taste and good. This is my third kit of the Barely Wine and I believe this is going to be the best.

A solid winner
Have brewed this kit each of the past three years, cellaring some from each batch. (This ages very nicely.) Definitely plan to keep this in my brewing rotation.

This is excellent
If you're a barley wine fan, you will love it. Plenty of hops to balance the malt. I added a couple of ounces of American oak chips in the secondary for about a month and it came out extremely well. Definitely will make this again.

This is great stuff
I added six pounds of wild flower honey towards the end of fermentation and every barley wine fan I know loves it. Not for everyone but it's good if you like the style.

Good Now, but Will Get Better with Age
Barley Wine, like single malt Scotch, may be an acquired taste, and is well worth the effort, especially if you prefer stronger more flavorful beer. Barley Wine needs to age. A local brewery had a 'vertical' BW tasting several years ago, where we tasted 10 samples [from younger to older] of a BW that had been aged from 1-10 years. Every year was noticeably better than the previous year. I tried a bottle of this kit after six weeks, and it is good now, and I think it will become excellent. I will wait until Christmas for the next taste. Stay tuned. Better yet, don't wait for me, go make your own batch now. It will be worth it!
