Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

"Back when we worked together, at what was then called the Pike Place Brewery, the day we brewed our barley wine was always a special occasion. Even though it was early fall, we would play Christmas music as we brewed, in allusion to the fact that the beer would not be released until the holiday season was in full swing. . . . To the uninitiated, the very name barley wine seems calculated to confuse. A wine made from barley? Well, sort of."--from the introduction

This definitive book on one of the world's legendary beers clearly explains the mysterious term "barley wine." Fal Allen and Dick Cantwell share their secrets of how to brew this challenging high-alcohol, hoppy, sweet ale that is every brewer's crowning achievement. Recipes from some of the beer industry's most respected brewers--Greg Noonan, Charlie Papazian, Fred Eckhardt, and others--are included.

Brewers Publications Classic Beer Style Series is devoted to offering in-depth information on world-class beer styles by exploring their history, flavor profiles, brewing methods, recipes, and ingredients.

About the Author

In 2000, he took over as the general manager at Anderson Valley Brewing Company (AVBC) in Northern California.

Format: Paperback
The quality of the most recent addition to the Classic Beer Style series should not be a surprise. Allen and Cantwell discuss the history of Barley Wine, from Bass No. 1, to the modern brews of the American Micros. Barley Wine discusses the unique problems, and solutions, in brewing high gravity beers, and includes 11 (mostly) all grain recipes. The approach is thorough, but practical, and does not dwell on scientific technical minutiae. Also included is a section with details of the ingredients and brewing processes used in 20 commercially produced Barley Wines. This book will allow you to approach your next batch of Barley Wine with confidence.

I found Fal and Dick's book to be one of the most useful of the Classic Beer Style series. It had the right balance of technical and historical information. I found the discussion of fermentation of BW to be helpful addressing the longer duration and the issues concerning attenuation of such a high gravity beer.

This book is one of the gems of the classic beer style series.

Here, the topic is barleywine ... a style that frequently gives both professional and amateur homebrewers fits. The author give good information on various brewing techniques that can help people to master this style - split lautering (for making both barley wine and mild ale from the same mash), wort concentratration/caramelization by long boils, using multiple yeast strains (a base strain for flavor, and other strains for higher attenuation/flocculation), etc.

This book is a must read for any amateur homebrewer who wants to attempt this style with improved chances of success and satisfaction.

p.s. One of my own personal specialities, back when I was still homebrewing regularly, was making clones of Anchor "Old Foghorn". The trick to duplicating that beer (aside from hop & yeast selection) is a touch of maple sugar. That tip is courtesy of yours truly, not Fal Allen.

This is one of the better books about beer that I've ever read. The history told by the two authors is fantastic, the richness of these style is covered to the top through the chapters. It counts yet with a great recipe book with various great comercial barleywines and garage ones. If you're passionate by the Barleywine style, this book will explain so many things of the most complex beer that mankind have ever did.

If you are going to home brew, you should know the history and parameters of the undertaking. This series gives specifics on the categories of the most popular beers. The only thing I wish were different would be if they would combine two or three categories to make a full size book and show a relationship of those categories. I own several of this series and intend to buy more.

One thing to keep in mind when ordering this book, it is not geared toward the homebrewer that is just starting out. Most of the recipes are for full mash brewing which someday soon I hope to be doing but for now the lack of extract recipes in the book make this an educational, more than a practical read for me. Otherwise it is well written and gave me great insight into a beer style i really enjoy.
