Barrel Project 04: English Barleywine

Written by Don Blake. Posted in Barrel Projects

OG 1.098    FG: 1.012    Stranahan's Barrel, gen 1 -  9 months   ABV:  11.2

We happened upon a Stranahan's Colorado Whiskey barrel and wondered what would go good in it.  Having done an imperial Stout, we figured that something big and malty would be good, so an English Barleywine sounded like a good idea
