Let it age. (If you can)
Just opened a bottle of December 2007._x000D_I think I have a few bottles left, no you can't come over._x000D_Make this, and hide it. It's good stuff.

Outstanding!
I made this two years ago and just drank the last bottle. I left it in the primary for four weeks,then in the secondary for seven months. I let it age in the bottle for one month before trying it. It became my favorite on the spot. After more than a year in the bottle it has an almost brandy-like taste.I can't afford to make this my everyday beer but I do make it once a year as a birthday present to myself.

Love this kit
This is the only Barleywine extract kit I have made and it turned out wonderful. It is a big beer so I recommend a blow off tube for sure. I really like the malt/hops balance going on here. Typically, I like to bulk age in a secondary for 2-3 months before bottling/kegging and then try to keep my hands off it for another couple of months. "People" say you should age a barleywine for a year...to date, I have not been able to get past 9 months before consuming. I highly recommend this kit.

Very flavourful complex brew
This is the best of the kits I have made so far from Midwest. It really didn't become drinkable until aging for several months in the bottles. I just finished my last bottle after bottle conditioning in a dark, cool spot for about 18 months. Very smooth, a bit sweet with several layers of hops coming through. Not a great summer drinking beer, but a great special treat on cold nights.

Amazing! Got better with age.
This beer was absolutely great. I aged it for 4 months in a constant temperature environment, force carbonated it, and then served it cold. It was the biggest hit at the family Thanksgiving and at New Years. Will definitely make again this year.

Even better than its Sierra Nevada namesake!
This barley wine is amazing. I brewed last September. In late January, the product was already decent enough to be the star of a ski house party. Now it's even more amazing. It has also gotten one friend back into homebrewing ("You made that from a kit?? Hot damn, kits have improved!") and another friend into homebrewing ("I want to do that!").

Good beer
I brewed this about 7 months ago. Aged it on bourbon soaked chips for 1 month after primary then 5 months off the chips. This beer turned out excellent! Really great taste, age it and reap the rewards!

Hi I bought this kit and it came with dry yeast but it also calls for a starter yeast I've read it's not good to use dry yeast for this can you tell what I should use to get the best results
J R on Jul 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: You are correct that dry yeast is not good for starters. The easiest solution is to use an additional packet of the dry yeast.
What kind of yeast is best for brew and should I make a starter does it come with the campaign yeast and 2stage fermentation is there dry hops
How long to carbonate in 22oz bottles
Thank you Jim
J R on Jun 30, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hi Jim,

The yeasts that we recommend for this beer are US-05, Wyeast 1056, and White Labs WLP001. This is a big beer, so a yeast starter would be very beneficial, or you could pitch extra packets. There are no dry-hops. It will take 1-4 weeks to carbonate in bottles, but there are many variables that could affect it. Here is the full recipe for the kit.
