Barleywine Update

Just a quick update on the barleywine that was brewed in conjunction with my Superbowl Stout as part of a split batch.  It is kegged and cold conditoning in my mini-fridge.  I drew samples to measure final gravity and do a tasting--it tastes awesome!  Final gravity was 1.025, which puts it at 9.3% alcohol by volume.  I plan to get a hold of some smaller bottles (7 or 8 oz.) and bottle this one to save for special occasions.  I need to come up with a good name for this one--any suggestions, readers?


  1. You are welcome to share the name I use for mine... "Barley Legal"

  2. I like Barley Squared, nice play on the Noble Square name. Although another idea just popped in my head, my daughter is at the age where she is pulling herself to standing position using various pieces of furniture. When she wants to sit, she just lets go and plops down on her buttocks. "Fall Down Go BOOM!" Barleywine has a nice ring to it, doesn't it?
