Bomber Barleywine 1 Gallon Beer Recipe Kit

SKU 1G14



Product Details

Born of the classic California barley wine, the Bomber small batch kit is ready to make an attack run on your taste buds. A big hit of citrusy American hops rides over rich caramelly malt and clean yeast character to deliver tons of flavor in a small package.
Barley Wine is a huge ale with a huge malt bill and a huge hop load to balance it. This English-style Barley Wine has intense, concentrated malt flavor with vinous, dried fruit, and molasses notes laced with a charge of hop bitterness and a considerable alcohol content.

Not My Favorite, But Not Unusual For A Barleywine

I'm glad I chose to do a 1-gallon kit instead of a 5-gallon kit.
If you're into Barleywines, I recommend this one for you as it is very similar to Barleywines that I've sampled in local breweries. Having tasted a few, I simply had to try to make one for myself and Midwest was kind enough to recommend this one to me.
Bomber Barleywine wasn't much different than others I've sampled, which I didn't care much for. The thing that's off-putting to me is the residual sweetness - to the point where it seems somewhat syrupy. The mouthfeel reminds me of a late harvest dessert wine. The ABV wasn't nearly as high as I was expecting, but then again, I didn't use a yeast starter which would probably have helped in this case.
I still may try to make a different recipe, if one presents itself, but it isn't on the top of my To Do list.
