Christmas Pudding Barleywine - Extract Brewing Kit (5 Gallons)

Item currently out of stock

Stop waiting for Decemeber to roll around so you can tuck into your Christmas pudding. Brew up a batch of this distinct Barleywine and enjoy a taste of the holiday season any time of year!  An English-style Barleywine based on Jason Alstrom's recipe for a traditional Christmas pudding, this is one of the many off-the-wall recipies that can be found in the Project Extreme Brewing book. With a grocery list of spices and dark fruit additions, a bystander might think you were preparing to bake an exotic dessert, rather than brew up a wicked strong beer. Thanks to 14 lbs of malt extract (and some other fermentables), Christmas Pudding Barleywine finishes well over 8% ABV. No doubt the proof is in this pudding.

The recipe sheet says add the dry fruits during the whirlpool: Should they also be transferred to the fermenter to sit until secondary? Or instead only have that limited initial steep time in the kettle?

BEST ANSWER: I just added in the whirlpool and strained the worth going into the fermented. I did try some when transferring to the keg and did get some of the flavors.. Its been aging since August and I am planning on starting to carbonate after Thanksgiving.
