Notes

7/25/2020-Been in the fermenter for 6 weeks (on oak for 4). Tasting notes, before it gets moved into a keg for carbonation: vinous, maybe slightly oxidized. Spicy, distinct cactus aftertaste. SRM about 13, attenuated a little bit on the sweet side, approximately 12.7%. Very caramelly. There is a slight coffee bitterness to it, but more dulce de leche sweet.

6/22/2020-Dry-hopped and added 1 oz. oak.

6/10/2020-American Barley Wine, with a parti-gyle (PA/Bitter) for the grain as well. The Agave, Sugar, and Honey are backup for low efficiency in the mash. I am using the same hops as in Bigfoot Barley Wine, but as I have never had that beer, I am just thinking that it's popularity makes it worth mimicking. I added 10ml 75% Phosphoric Acid, 2g. CaSO4, 4.5g. CaCl, 1.5g. Epsom to Mash. I added 1g. CaSO4, 2.5g, CaCl, .75g. Espom to Sparge. Mash pH should have been around 5.4. Put it on the yeast cake from the Red Rye as a starter.
