    Looking for a barelywine recipe. I love Firestone Walker Helldorado, so I'm leaning toward making a clone of that, just haven't seen a reliable clone out on the interwebs yet. Not as big of a fan of their Sucaba. Adelbert's Brewery in Austin Texas used to make a rum barrel aged barleywine that was awesome, but haven't seen that one in a while. Not a fan of Sierra Nevada's Bigfoot, too bitter. Looking for Malt and Yeast forward with considerable sweetness and very little contribution from hops aroma and flavor. Just enough bitterness to keep the sweetness from being overpowering. Probably looking for less than 30 IBU's.

    Any suggestions?

    Lots of them out there.... Find one and check it against the BJCP style guide, typical ingredients are listed. Alternately, look for recipes for Barleywine in BYO or Craft Beer and Brewing - both are reputable recipe sources.

    Ah gee that tops mate i was going to mention my barley wine but thought I blow my own trumpet enough in this site as it is:p.

    All in can say if your gunna brew this keep some DME handy incase gravity doesn't hit the Mark I know I had to add some. My efficiency drops for big ABV beers.
