Product details

Shugga High Strong Ale pours with a firey burnished orange hue, offering up sky-high flavors and aromas of fresh crusty bread, complex caramel, raisin, and fig, rounded out with a blunt nose of citrusy, piney, and slightly dank hops. Beyond the significantly high gravity malt foundation, a big dose of brown sugar helps this beer dry out a bit while simultaneously adding layers of slightly sweet toffee and maple. This is a real whopper of a beer, so don't bogart it - Shugga High is best consumed in good company.

Brad’s Notes:

Inspired by a hugely popular seasonal beer brewed on the west coast, Shugga High Barleywine is an interesting take on the American Barleywine style. The relatively simple malt bill lends a full, smooth sipping experience and delivers a huge wave of complementary flavors, while the medium-high bitterness and firm hop flavor to balance out the moderate sweetness of the malt. To crank things up a notch, a healthy dose of delicious brown sugar is added to encourage higher attenuation and also adds additional depth to the beer’s overall flavor, with notes of raisin and faint maple candy. This is quite a large beer, so be sure to give it time to age properly for all of the nuances to come together to form a cohesive array of flavors and to deliver an absolutely enjoyable sipping experience. Pairs perfectly with chilly evenings, crackling fires, s'mores, maduro wrapped cigars and CCR on cassette tape.

Great ingredients. Made adjustments

Northern Brewer always has the ingredients I’m looking for and the quality is always high.
I’ve been brewing a barley wine every year for many years now so I know what I like. I doubled up on the yeast and used a can of wort to get the yeast going. The ingredient list was right but I altered when I added the fermentables. The recipe called for 2/3 of the fermentables to go in late, which makes the barley wine much sweeter than I care for. So I added 2/3 earlier in the boil and 1/3 late in the boil.
When I racked to the secondary after a month the flavor was good. Gonna give it three more months of fermentation before bottling. Check back with then. I’m confident this will be a great beer to enjoy through the winter.

So far, super beasty.

Just brewed this over the weekend. Used the standard dry yeast and the day after brewing it is fermenting like crazy! My 8 gallon conical overflowed and clogged the airlock. Using a hose now & will return the airlock when things calm down. Brew is 8 degrees F higher than room temperature. Yeast is just cranking! Looks like it will be a great November.

Good organized kit and simple to follow. Made a 2 liter starter using fast pitch and ferm took off within 8 hours. Transferred to secondary after 2 weeks and will leave it be for a few months. Will update once I taste it
