Barleywine Project Recipe

Primetime Brewers Barley Wine Project

Batch size: 5 gallons

Starting Gravity 1.090 – 1.100

Finishing Gravity approx: 1.020

IBU’s 65 – 75

HOPS: Centennial, Chinook, Columbus or Cascade

YEASTS: Wyeast 1056, White Labs WLP001, DCL Safale US-05

Use plenty of yeast, make a starter and bump it up a few times or 2 packs of dry yeast.

All Grain brewers use a good 2-row base malt and mash with 1.25 quarts of water per pound at 152F. Mash

efficiency is based on 75% extraction. If your system doesn’t get 75%, adjust your malt bill accordingly.

Note to all: If you cannot boil the entire 5 gallons, you will have to increase your hops about 35% to account

for the lower utilization due to the higher gravity of the boil.

Extract w/grains: 10.5 lbs DME (Briess Golden or Muntons Light)
