I can't believe that after 7 years of homebrewing, I just made my first barley wine.
I got so busy brewing my stock favorites, I forgot to take the time out to try brewing new styles.
Granted, there are probably a lot of styles I haven't done yet, and I really need to get on top of that, but something like this should have probably been done in year 2 or 3. Coming in at 1.123 OG, this thing is most likely sitting in the basement until 2012.
Hopefully it will be ready before the Mayan calendar runs out. I would like to be able to taste it before the world ends.
