Fermenting volcano
As with all the kits the recipe was relatively easy to follow. With all the malt in this recipe it was a veritable volcano! It fouled the three piece air lock within minutes once it started to ferment. So I filled another gallon jug with sanitizer and it bubbled away happily for the better part of two week! I let it go another week to settle down so three weeks in the fermentor. Just finished bottling this brew - got nine bottles of nice clear red brew. I won't try it for at least 4 weeks as our house temp varies between 60ºF nights and 65ºF days.

This stuff is delicious! I like that the small batch kit is only a 4 week brew.

Simple, Delicious
Super simple recipe on brew day, and great taste coming out of the bottle a month later. Will probably buy this one again.

Crazin Barleywine.....
This was probably the best Northern Brew kit I've made. I added about 1/2 a package of Crasin's (dried cranberries) at flame out. Let my hot wort sit for about 5-7 minutes before cooling it and then put in straight into the fermentor, Craisin's and all. Will do that again so it's ready for Thanksgiving. Nice;).

I finally made this recipe and the starting gravity was about 1.100

BEST ANSWER: Hmmm, that does seem high! Let us know how it goes!
Is there anything special about brewing up a Barley wine? What about priming sugar versus the fizz drops?
Scott T on Jun 2, 2017
BEST ANSWER: There is nothing any more special about brewing this than any other high alcohol beer. ie porter or stout. A barleywine is just another type of beer. A bayleywine needs time to age and mature. You will want to wait a minimum 6 months before drinking these. A year would be even better. Due to the high alcohol content, they will keep for many years.

As for the sugar, sugar is sugar whether it is a fizz drop or corn sugar. High ABV brews like this will not have much carbonation or head even after a long period of aging. This is perfectly normal for high ABV brews. Just look at some video reviews of other barleywines like Arctic Devil for example. Fizz drops will work just fine, just be expected to wait if you want a great tasting barleywine.
What is the original gravity on this? It isn't showing under the "additional information" tab.

I'm not seeing a specified OG for this kit, but based on the recipe, you can expect it to have an OG somewhere around 1.090
I used to love the barleywine made up in a micro-brewery in Oregon. They put it in the same glass you show, but it was because the alcohol content was a lot higher and they were constricting the consumption. Can you tell me what the OG and approximate FG/alcohol percentage is for this barleywine?
D E on Feb 20, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The OG should be roughly 1.086 and give an ABV of roughly 9%
