Asking for help collaboration on crafting an English-style Barleywine using the Mr. Beer Seasonal ESB (best before May 2016), Pale LME, and a mini-mash. I've pretty much figured out the grain bill: Maris otter, CaraMunich I, Caramel 60, Special B, and maybe a little Melanoidin malt, but that's about as far as I've gotten. Hops and yeast still need work. Why should I have all the fun?
Again, I'll blame @HoppySmile! for bragging up the Innis & Gunn oak-aged beers, and all the homebrewers that have gone before while 'tinkering with the Winter Dark Ale.' In any case, this recipe used up my last WDA so I thought that I may as well go big.🍻 Rum, Smoke & Oak UK Dark Ale Winter Dark Ale Craft HME, best before Jan. 2017 Malting Co. of Ireland 2-row, 1.0 lb.
