 17-1/2 lbs pale dry extract
3 lbs crystal malt
1.5 lbs flaked barley
1.5 lbs wheat malt
 
Hops
 68 HBUs Chinook hops (boil)

Yeast Sierra Nevada ale yeast 
Procedure This recipe makes 5 gallons of full-strength barleywine plus 4 gallons half strength. Follow normal procedures, but brew in a 7-gallon kettle and then divide the wort into separate fermenters. The special hops substitute is a mix of hops repeatedly soaked and sparged in lukewarm water for at least 4 hours to eliminate water-soluble off-flavors. Special hops are added to the secondary fermenter about 1 week before kegging. Quantity used depends on quality of herbs/hops.
